A Look At Metro's CeBIT Display

Metro, the Germany retailer, had a massive display at the CeBIT fair in Hanover Germany. Here are some photographs of the various RFID concepts it showed off.
By Andrew Price
Mar 18, 2006I visited CeBIT in Hanover, Germany, and was blown away by the size and scope of the Metro exhibit. Since words couldn’t possibly convey how large and elaborate the 2,800-square-meter (30,000-square-feet) exhibit was, I took some photos, which I thought I would share with RFID Journal readers. Most of the concepts displayed were not new to those of us in the RFID industry, but at CeBIT, there was a great deal of interest from consumers and businesspeople alike.


The main area of the Metro exhibition.



This area was called the Future Mall.



A German television station explains Metro's smart shopping cart terminal.



A Metro employee explains the concept behind the smart washing machine.



Meanwhile, another shows off a smart microwave oven.



And another shows off a smart refrigerator.



Consumers visit the Metro display in a steady stream.
