New children's play area at CVG features high-tech interactivity

The Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport recently partnered with The CTM Group Inc. to develop the latest in children’s play areas. The new development, called Funway Runway, provides entertainment for the whole family.
Funway Runway is located in the food court seating area of Concourse B at CVG. It features an interactive floor that is equipped with MotionAware technology, which comes to life and reacts with human movement. By interacting with projected images, travelers activate animations, trigger sounds, play games or interact with content applications.
There are touch screen monitors with educational and fun games for younger children, and individual rides for all ages. Funway Runway’s colorful walls provide a backdrop for images of local landmarks that were provided by the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The CTM Group installed the first to market iReality ride, which incorporates augmented reality into a ride. The four-way motion ride lets riders watch their faces as they're featured as part of the ride in real-time. It is enhanced through hand mapping, which allows riders to participate in the action through simple hand movements. iReality lets everyone watch the fun on a 55-inch flat screen monitor above the ride.
