Where are the kiosks?

I recently returned to the office after traveling in Germany and Switzerland for two weeks. Of all of the things I anticipated seeing before I left, I was very interested in seeing differences in everyday life, especially where technology is concerned. What I found was a little disappointing. I saw very few examples of kiosks or digital signage in Germany and Switzerland. What I did see most of was a chain of stores named “Kiosk” where you could buy something to read or eat before hopping on a train. Thumbs up to the Chilis in the Charlotte International Airport though. They had an excellent digital signage application that allowed people to browse the menu and also integrated ads.

  1. Wow, I’m surprised, I saw a lot of that in the London area. While it is not pervasive yet, the technology and guiding business principles are getting closer to pervasive. Some countries do a better job than others, and the USA is one of the leaders, especially in retail.
