These clever kiosks are popping up in airports all over America. They offer movie rental downloads in less than three minutes, allowing you to watch on the plane without need for an Internet connection.
Fast Company says that Digiboo’s kiosks are able to do such fast downloads thanks to Wi-Fi router that works “significantly faster than most Internet networks provided by airports.” The file size for an average movie is between 1 and 1.5 gigabytes. Digiboo super-fast routers will transfer 1.3 gigabytes in less than three minutes.
Many airports in the midwest already have Digiboo kiosks, with the company expecting to place 2,000 of them before the end of 2016. The Digiboo app is available for iOS, Android and Windows devices.
