Glasses HoloLens flight attendants know passengers (3 photos + video)
This is not just another entertainment for passengers, and a very useful gadget on the platform, HoloLens, the so-called “glasses flight attendants”, created by Air New Zealand based on augmented reality headset offered by Microsoft. Perhaps in the future all cabin crew will receive these glasses, and then the level of service in aircraft will rise to unprecedented heights!
Without delving into technical details, we note only that one glance at the passenger, the flight attendant gets on it a lot of information: besides the name, age and trip purpose, is a habit that a passenger has seen fit to indicate any medical conditions, phobias and even when he last spoke to the stewardess asking about the drink. In principle, such information can be obtained now via the onboard computer, but when it instantly appears on the screen “glasses flight attendants”, the staff will work much easier.
No less important option is the analysis of the emotional state of the passenger on the basis of studying his heart rate, breathing, facial expressions and other factors. Perhaps someone is simply experiencing fear of flying, and maybe the passenger became ill, and he needs urgent medical care.
While the technology is experimental, the headset is quite bulky and not too convenient to use in close cabin, but this is the technical details. The important thing is that the demo video looks very impressive, and you can expect a positive verdict of experts.
In the near future hardly it is possible to count on the widespread emergence of systems of augmented reality, however, this project looks quite ambitious and is sure to attract the attention of investors, especially if the airline is interested in advertising and improving service quality for air passengers.
