Ever wonder what will happen to all those obsolete public pay-phone booths littering the urban streetscape? In New York, they’re being replaced by super-kiosks that are not only Wi-Fi hotspots, but platforms that will help people navigate the city, find services, and discover new destinations. It’s a model you may see popping up in a city near you, and a step toward the idea of connected Smart Cities.

At Xlab 2015, we’re putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Be there to see how it all relates to YOUR practice!

Even the Humble Parking sign can benefit from digital screen technology. Why is the parking sign so complex? Because there is a lot of information to be communicated, but it is not all needed at the same time making a dynamic display the ideal choice to clean it up and make it more legible and understandable.
