Most city tourist information is boring, two-dimensional and not interactive at all; the CityWall in Helsinki, however, is a notable exception to this rule. The CityWall is a giant multi-touch interactive information center that has just been launched this month.
Files are organized into spherical rows, and users can scroll through them to view pictures, videos, articles, discussions and maps. Much of the content deals with the relationship between Helsinki and nature, and the nuisances presented to the landscape by human interaction.
CityWall has another neat feature. According to the CityWall Web site, the kiosk automatically downloads Flickr photos and videos tagged with 'Helsinki,' 'CityWall' or 'cwhki.' This media can be viewed in its own separate location on the CityWall interface.
