The social network connectivity and revitalizing design of this installation comes as boon to stressed out flyers.

Singapore’s Changi Airport, in partnership with LG Electronics, unveiled a ‘Social Tree’ that allows travelers to connect with their friends and family. The airport has won praise and accolades, including the Skytrax 2013 World’s Best Airport award. The ‘Social Tree’ is the latest technological addition to the aiport’s already impressive offering of first class entertainment and connectivity facilities.

The tree is a towering 8.7m high and 11.1m wide and is composed of 64 LG screens that wrap around the top of the tree in a 360 degree fashion. The display screens feature images of Singapore’s landscape and photos uploaded by travellers. People can share photos and videos from their Facebooks to the ‘Social Tree’s display screens. Travellers don’t need phones or laptops to send videos or photographs to loved ones since the ‘Social Tree’ has built-in cameras.
