Staff at Edinburgh Airport are using Google Glass headsets to help them deal with customer inquiries. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-29425349
The smart glasses display digital information in the user’s field of vision and can take photos and video.
Airport staff are trying out the wearable tech until December to provide flight information, translations and answer questions about the city.
Chief executive Gordon Dewar said the trial showed they were thinking “out of the box”.
The airport’s welcome team is testing the system in the check-in hall to establish how best they can use it.
Mr Dewar added: “The fact that it’s the first trial of its kind in a Scottish airport is exciting as it shows we’re leading the way in how we interact with our passengers.
“Over the next few months we’ll be able to establish whether this product is suitable for an airport environment.”
Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport, dealing with close to 10 million passengers in 2013.
