Macy's Interactive Window, Holiday 2006

I am amazed that this department store is one block long and has eight floors. The shoe department is pretty exhausting. I believe theres a couple of fast food places and Starbucks or some coffee shop inside. What even is more amazing is that they are going to be open 24 hours two or three days before Christmas, so if you're a procrastinator, run there!

Also, check out the wooden escalators. I am amazed by the carpentry and it's smoothness.

The windows of all department stores is always dressed up. Macy's went all the way with this one bringing Disneyland to NYC. I think they used a proximity sensor for the button and four LED lights (to indicate that a switch has been set off) on the window. When you press the button, the characters react. Each window has a theme/story.

But first, the tree-light that adorns the entrance.

If you press this tree, the boy waves that candy cane around.

Press the owl, and he turns.

Look carefully at this dragon's eyes. He's watching you.

And here's the whole scene...

This one has a "sea" theme. The octopus frames the window.

When you press this shell-shaped button and the oyster behind it opens to reveal a mermaid offering a pearl.

Here's my favorite window of the series. When you look at this window, it looks like you are flying.
