British Airways Billboards Interact With Planes Overhead

British Airways worked with agency Ogilvy 12th Floor to install new digital billboards that interact with the planes flying over them.

The digital billboards use custom-built surveillance technology to detect planes flying overhead and change the current digital display to that of a child pointing at the plane. The billboards also display the plane’s flight number and route.

Airbnb For Dating Only Lets Users Rent Rooms To Attractive Guests

LoveRoom is a new online platform that launched last week with the intention of helping people find a place to stay for free.
