Driving a Porsche to your plane
If you find yourself making a connection in Atlanta and you have to go from one terminal to another, you can relax if you’re a top-tier Delta Air Lines member.
An airline agent greets you at the door of the plane, takes you down the employee stairs to the operations area, puts you in a Porsche parked by luggage carts and zips you over to your next flight. Up the jet-bridge stairs, bypassing the whole gate area, and you’re in your seat.
If you find yourself in Germany and waiting at a traffic light to cross the street, you may be challenged to a game of Pong, as the above video shows.
According to the video comments, the game might be just part of a project rather than a city-sanctioned installation, but it’s still pretty cool. I’d like to see Frogger at stoplights next.
