London Eye …redux

I was intrigued when I heard that the London Eye had undergone a renovation and relaunch. I imagined all kinds of spectacular technological upgrades to the giant Thames-side ferris wheel. but I was let down when I discovered that all EDF Energy (the sponsor) did was to add a few interactive Samsung Galaxy tablets (not even iPads) to the rotating pod capsules. The tablets simply offer info on 55 famous landmarks and “360º inside looks” at the sights. The first upgrade in 11 years, and all the punters get is second-rate tablets, big whoop.

  1. I need to get around…not on the ferris wheel but in London itself. This looks like a cool attraction. Agreed….there’s a lot which can be done within the capsule.
