These connected screens apply the concept of credit card tap payments to an interactive kiosk. Created by European company Think&Go, the Connected Screens technology is one part interactive touch screen and one part multi-payment system. This is possible due to a partnership with Ingenico.

The Payment Screen combines their existing Connected Screens with new technology that activates pictures with multiple contact-less point of sales. This means you can use cards or mobile devices (including Apple Pay) to pay by simply holding them up to the screen.

This provides new sales and distribution opportunities for stores and e-commerce brands, as the screens can be installed in a wide variety of places. Perfect for transportation centers such as airports, the screens also offer new marketing channels.
