When long lines and delays spark imagination
Long lines at check-in counters in airports and flight delays cause frustration for passengers. Open Ideo can stimulate and divert passengers' attention to problem solving instead.
Open Ideo can post current challenges near waiting areas in aiports such as check-in counters and gates. People can respond to current challenges by contributing their concepts or inspiration through their mobile phones. Open Ideo "stations" can be setup at select places in the airport where people without smart phones ( or choose to use the station) can walk up and enter in their concepts or ideas.
