Dutch airline KLM has worked with Apple’s augmented reality technology to produce an app which lets customers make sure their bags aren’t too big for carry-on.
KLM’s AR hand baggage check uses a transparent, virtual suitcase, which shows the permitted dimensions for hand baggage on board. The user’s real bag is shown next to it.
A statement from KLM said: "will continue to develop and improve the service in the future, so that it grows in-line with the latest AR technology available."
The hand baggage check is currently available in the KLM App for iOS users.
An article in the spring issue of C&IT Magazine explored the potential uses of AR in the events industry, including adding a Pokemon-Go style element to conferences and exhibitions.
