Samsung has unveiled In Tune With You, an immersive experience leveraging lift-and-learn technology at Heathrow’s T5 terminal, through global retail technology agency Outform.
The space, sited in the InMotion flagship store, aims to create a place for passengers to ‘step outside’ the airport environment, providing mood-boosting experiences to prepare them for the journey ahead. The space heroes Samsung products, including its new Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Z series and Galaxy Watch 5 series, through a sensorial experience that aims to improve wellbeing by creating a calming space in the airport.
Outside the experience zone, an interactive touchscreen displays the Galaxy Z Flip4 smartphone which hints at the experience within; the 360 content invites travellers to take a moment and unfold their world.
On entering the space, the Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro display uses lift-and-learn technology to enable passengers to try the device and measure their blood oxygen reading, which is displayed on a digital screen. The digital screen delivers personalised information based on each passenger taking part and educates by displaying pertinent information.
At the heart of the sanctuary is a Galaxy Buds soundscape, where passengers are able to recharge with 360 sound. Hyper directional audio from above makes a series of auditory chambers within the space, allowing passengers to switch between ambient sound and noise cancelling capabilities of the Galaxy Buds2 Pro as well as displaying Buds2 and Buds Live.
Outform’s PodDrop product supports the experience so that passengers can claim a free inflight gift – from ear plugs to branded eye masks.
James Dawson, business unit director at Outform, says: “As well as allowing passengers to relax, recharge and reconnect, we also highlight the immersive and versatile screens of the Galaxy Z series in a digital form. The fun and immersive experience on the big screen brings to life the unique features of the Galaxy Z series like never before as passengers flex their body to control the content on the screen.”
