Aisle411, a provider of indoor mapping and location solutions, has leveraged Google’s Project Tango technology platform to create a new augmented reality experience for passengers navigating Mineta San Jose International Airport in California.

Passengers who download the new app simply hold their mobile device in front of them to reveal a series of options belonging to that particular area of the airport. They can then click on augmented digital billboards to display information belonging to amenities in that area. This can include promotions and menus for retail and dining outlets or directions, estimated walking times and flight information belonging to departure gates. The app even includes digital content such as 3D animated sharks and beer glasses to further entertain travelers.
