NASA Ticketing Kiosks Video – Double Vision Screen Terminal
Wow. Been a long long time since we’ve seen stacked double screens in a ticketing kiosk. Usually, it’s an overhead attractor but this is a new design iteration that makes the old overhead attractor iteration look rudimentary. Worth noting too that the top screen is independently controlled via BrightSign.
Overhead attractors running digital signage “attract loops” as they are called have been around forever. You can see if before and after that originally the ticket stalls had the quintessential tacked-on overhead “nude” display. Didn’t exactly exude super technology that takes you to the moon and beyond. Negative branding in fact. Communicating upscale is always better than communicating very cheap.
You may remember that phase of ATM Toppers where that industry adopted the overhead digital sign tactic. Pretty tough sell with an ATM since its intrinsic value was always just getting cash.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex chose us to custom design and supply ticketing kiosks. The design we came up with is inspired by the command consoles of the newer generation rockets. The kiosks literally slip right into the old ticket windows. Not a single screw is used to lock the kiosks into the window frame. In fact, you could remove the kiosk and replace the glass in under an hour. I’ll post more details at a later date.
