Innovative and Safe Visitor Experiences
Visitors interact with multitouch touchscreen attractions at Reunion Tower in Dallas, TX. Reunion Tower recently installed Freetouch on their interactive installations as part of their COVID-19 response.
Attractions are always looking to push the visitor experience envelope to deliver once-in-a-lifetime thrills and content to diverse audiences from around the globe. As attractions see visitors start to return after a challenging couple of years, they now need to welcome newly touch-averse visitors concerned about safety.
Freetouch converts existing touchscreen interactives, self-service, and check-in kiosks to touchless in minutes, letting visitors use their own devices to interact without needing to download an app.
Freetouch was designed with wheelchair-bound and mobility-impaired users in mind. With Freetouch installed, visitors can interact with existing digital interactives from the comfort of their own smartphone, virtually eliminating issues with reach, accessibility and removing the need for larger arm movements from the user experience.
Touchless Interfaces for the Touch-Averse
Interspectral's Inside Explorer works flawlessly with Freetouch, offering a safe touchless interface option for visitors alongside the primary user interface.
With Freetouch, the full fidelity of multitouch interactivity is preserved at any scale, from single-user to building-scale displays. Freetouch partner Interspectral uses Freetouch to provide a touchless interface to their highly-interactive Inside Explorer application, running seamlessly alongside the existing application. With Freetouch, visitors can use all of the features of the original application safely from their smartphone, with no loss of functionality or latency.
Freetouch is a really simple way of enabling interaction for touch screens but without actual physical touch. I really like the way that it is so easy to add to the Inside Explorer application without any modification to the software. The Freetouch system enables access to all the functionality of our application via the user’s mobile device. So, for any of our clients that want a belt and braces COVID-free way of using their existing installations, Freetouch provides this in a really simple and effective way.
Disinfecting Screens Doesn't Last
Reduce Operating Costs, Create Less Waste, and Prevent Damage
Some attractions spend upwards of $70,000 per year on disposable styluses for visitors! These not only contribute to the waste stream, but can ultimately end up damaging interactive displays when their protective nubs come off, resulting in increased capital costs for display replacement.
Freetouch is a “set and forget” solution - once installed, it requires no attention, only an active subscription and network connection.
Freetouch reduces operating costs and waste through reduced use of consumables such as hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes, and protects displays from contamination and wear, without requiring modifications to existing applications.
