Navigating an airport can be stressful even for experienced travelers so designers Kang Eun-Kyung and Park Ji-Eun thought a compass built into one’s boarding pass would be a great idea.
The result is the Airport Compass, which is powered by a solid-state thin film battery, which needs very little energy and is flexible.
The arrow is illustrated on e-paper. RFID (radio frequency identification) technology guides the passenger to their gate, having recognized the passenger’s travel route. All the passenger needs to do is follow the arrow.
Furthermore, the ticket connects to kiosks within the airport for easy information access about arrival city, such as the weather, transportation, food, etc.”
