A touch-screen installation for sharing stories in airports

Made by Beatriz Vizcaino Angela Huang Jeff Kirsch

Acumulus is a large-scale installation of networked multi-touch displays in airports around the globe. By enabling travelers to compose and read short, anonymous messages for and from each other, it satisfies the inherently human interest in sharing stories with those around us, while simultaneously highlighting two technologies that have greatly shrunk the distance between people: air travel, and the internet.
