Holograms Of Staff To Help Airport Security


news.sky.com

Passengers at Manchester Airport will be greeted by holograms of staff from next week in a bid to reduce security check queues.
The technology has been developed with Musion and the holograms are carefully prepared to retain maximum transparency and strength.
The holograms will be in place in Manchester Airport from Monday. Other airports around the UK are currently investigating their installation.

If passengers ignore real live people, they're supposed to pay attention to a hologram? Well, if you're out of ideas, I guess it seems great.

"Hey, that hologram was so cool."
"Was it saying something, though?"
"I dunno, I was too busy noticing how cool it was."

But indeed the 80's future is already here.

Allow me to correct you...

Humans do listen, but they simply do not pay attention.

were as holograms will pay attention but will not listen.....hope that makes some form of logic.

after reading some of the article to my girlfriend she wanted to know, are they still gonna be able to fondle us and grope our children? i d on't see how this is going to improve lines, but i'll tell you what will happen...

the program will glitch, someone is gonna get pissed and sure enough, get hauled off to some dark little room for acting suspicious... rights denied, cuffed or even jailed, all because of some "cool, new gizmo". but that's just my opinion

Incredible.
The stupid woman is grinning delightedly, totally ignoring the fact that an equally brainless hologram is about to take her job.

At least the TSA staff are safe. No-one knows yet how to make a hologram which will harrass passengers and molest them by poking their most private places. They could, however, make some which would giggle and appear to jack off while perving at the "near enough to nude" scanner images.

they dont look like the traditional holgram that first comes to mind ( light projection only) . By looking at the scond picture with the male hologram/employee, he is resting his arm on the hologram. So it appears to just be an ellaborate tv screen not a 3d light projection.

I was about to post the same thing. 1'st they tell you the hollogram will help the staff, but the really thing is the staff will be fired soon.

Well, yes these holograms look cool and neat and new and fun... but. How about the loss of every single employee that is to be replaced by such a hologram?

Do you remember the coporations first step? The first step was to outsource human labor from developped countries to under-developped ones in order to save a buck. Now, technology helps eliminate jobs all together through such applications.

Of course, for the first year, a few staff and techs will remain on site but once they (government, corporation) realize the profits and reduced expenses that are to gain with such applications, it won't be long before they lay off thousands upon thousands of people in many fields, not only airport security.

Just to give you an idea: police traffic holograms, commercials holograms, tourguide holograms, museum guide holograms, information desk holograms, reception holograms... all this is just the tip of the 'massive lay-off' iceberg' that is this new 'COOL' technology.

Kudos, it's still cool though haha.
