This year the Saks Fifth Avenue holiday windows will be powered by Windows 7 to bring life the children’s book “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Flake” – the story of a snowflake named Twinkle with 3-D animations and interactive window displays. According to the press release, more than 20 video monitors provided by Microsoft and powered by Windows 7 will help animate some of the book’s key scenes. The windows will also feature ice-skating penguins and a voiceover of the book that is audible to passersby. In addition, holiday shoppers can tweet their holiday wishes using #holidaywindows and have them appear in the Saks windows, making the windows interactive. With dedicated PC lounge areas in-store, customers can check out chic Windows 7 PCs and share their holiday wishes with the world. If you’re around, be sure to stop by and check out the holiday “windows”!
