Touch Screens Make Old Phone Booths Relevant

Design News 10.15.12

Like London's wired trashcans, New York has had some digitally-upgraded urban infrastructure. City24x7 is expanding beyond their pilot program, adding touch screens to more phone booths around the Big Apple. The info hubs are wi-fi hotspots, and also provide transit apps, news, and restaurant reviews, as well as coupons and advertising, based on the immediate vicinity. The company also plans to start pilots in other cities.
