Photo of the Week?
We are going to go with the new Burger King Self-Order Pickup. Not a big fan of the “lollypop” format but to their credit the AudioNav from Storm Interface is attached for accessibility. We’ll give them points for that. Most retailers going cheap are the same ones that do not provide accessible technology (and more liability down the road).
Video of the Week
There was a big RFP for temperature kiosks this week from Federal Government and so we’ll opt for nice video of the Olea Kiosks production floor with lots of temperature kiosks, both standup and counter, being prepared for shipment. These units also can be repurposed later for visitor check-in worth noting.
