AviationGlass & Technology (AGT) has collaborated with AIM Altitude to further develop AGT’s “Smart Mirror” for aircraft interiors. The companies are co-developing product enhancements and applications that enable the AeroGlass Mirror, concealing an invisible display, to show branding, advertising as well as passenger and crew information.
Embedded lighting and touch screen buttons enable AGT’s ultra-thin AeroGlass mirrors to turn into screens. Possible applications include integrated screens in bulkheads, galleys or in lavatories for advertising and passenger communications including ‘close the door’ and ‘return to seat’ signs.
Jaap Wiersema, AGT’s COO, said: “This cooperation with AIM Altitude helps AGT demonstrate just how versatile our AeroGlass mirror products can be in aircraft interiors. In addition to the endless design possibilities and beauty factor, its integrated display becomes a channel for communications not only with passengers but also amongst crew members.”
Ross Burns, group lead industrial designer at AIM Altitude added: “Our aim is to help customers successfully integrate new and exciting technologies into their unique flight experiences and this collaboration with AGT enables us to expand our range of solutions for aircraft interiors. Integrating AeroGlass mirrors into our furniture, means enhanced on-board interaction in a highly attractive and efficient manner.”
