The Observation Dock B is a popular sightseeing spot at Zurick airport. The 250-meter long open-air observation deck was recently equipped with a pair of Airport Scopes that allow visitors to look through and reveal real-time infographics.

The digital binocular retrieves data from airplanes and airport buildings and displays information as a graphic overlay. The augmented reality device is able to detect the exact position of airplanes by analyzing real-time data from the control tower and reveal the plane’s carrier, type, destination or point of origin.

Glass panel displays are also installed along the Dock B where visitors can get information on flight procedures and also the frequency for the aircraft radio which can be heard over a built-in loudspeaker.

The installations were designed and created by ART+COM, a German interaction design studio. Dock B was opened on 1 December, 2011 and can be visited daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
