Do you remember the first time you went to Times Square or saw a Barneys Christmas window? Think about the annual spring Macy's Flower Show or the local Whole Foods produce department. Do you remember the first time you stopped and drank it all in?

There are and have been a wide variety of experiments and attempts to use screens, beacons, sensors and the like to improve sales. There are many, many examples of bad executions resulting in stale content on the screen, dead screens or product configurators no one wants to use. Many get installed only to be pulled out a few fiscal years later and labeled failures.
