Expore Chicago Installation at O'Hare Airport: Collaboration between HP TouchSmart PC's , GigaPan, and Others

I was going to post the pictures I took today of touch-screens and other displays from the Cleveland airport, but the news about the HP TouchSmart installation at the O'Hare airport was more exciting.

"Panoramas created with GigaPan, a technology developed by Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute and NASA, are featured on a new city Web site. The imagery of iconic Chicago locations can be explored in detail with 50 HP TouchSmart PCs installed throughout the airport by HP and the Chicago Department of Aviation and Office of Tourism."
