Parents are often stressed and anxious while navigating the airport. They are confused about where they need to go, what they have to do and if they have enough time. On top of this they are afraid their child will run away or bother others. To solve this we designed a new playful way finding system aimed at kids, to let children help their parents navigate the airport in a fun and intuitive way.
