Interactive Kiosks

To be honest I can't remember running into any interactive kiosks besides the UMD one in Solon Campus Center. It is actually kind of exciting to run into one, because you don't see them very often. It's something new to explore. I think interactive kiosks are nice because they eliminate the paper waste of maps and other information that is included in the kiosk. They have the ability to show all kinds of different information using motion graphics and sound, so they can be really interesting and fun. One disadvantage though is that they are (or can be) rather large and immobile, which can pose a problem in some spaces. They can also take a massive amount of time to create and get running. I guess maybe the biggest disadvantage is that they are breakable and in that case you would confused people.
