The Koru lounge at Auckland International airport has always been a sanctuary for weary travellers.
Now those waiting with energy to burn can do just that playing an Xbox 360 Kinect which has just been installed in the lounge.
“It’s been amazing to see how people have taken to it and it’s not just the young ones either,” says lounge manager Carmen Howearth.
“The Kinect lets you play the games by using your body and once people get going there’s no stopping them. What we’ve noticed is that other guests seem to love watching them play too”.
It’s perhaps no surprise the hi-tech gadget’s made it into the Koru lounge - latest figures show 93 per cent of Kiwi homes have some kind of gaming device in the home.
