In an attempt to add add greater efficiencies to the complicated and often frustrating process of airport security, London’s Luton Airport has unveiled holographic members of staff to help travelers navigate the lines. The appropriately named virtual assistants – Holly and Graham – will announce reminders and demonstrate time saving steps such as removing laptops from bags to passengers as they approach security checkpoints. The move is an effort to personalize the security process, and points to one future model of in-store customer service. Though, we’ll know we have truly reached an apex, once these same holograms start being recognized as individuals and responding accordingly.
