Gadget for Connections In Flight
The WestJet Flight Light innovation is a gadget that enables children and their parents who are inflight to connect in real-time. This is an interesting gadget that serves a need for millions of kids with parents who are travelling. WestJet is based in Canada and their invention provides kids a visual image of where their parents are as they travel by plane to a destination. The image is on the ceiling of the child's room at night.
This device communicates by Bluetooth with a smartphone App that the parent uses to enter their flight at WestJet. The flight data goes to the WestJet Flight Light where it's projected onto the ceiling, as a continuous updating airplane and flight map. Parents can also send text messages and emogies for projection alongside the map.
