    okay maybe its not imortant enough to warrant exclamation marks, but you are reading this so you checked it out.

    --reposted from engadget--


    Hot on the heels of Nokia's own bus stop gimmick comes none other than Solo, which has erected a clever display on a number of waiting areas to allow perfect strangers to yap it up on giant mobiles. The interactive billboards each sport a larger-than-usual flip phone, which allows curious onlookers to mash an enlarged walkie talkie button and get on the horn with a faraway stranger. The active two-way radio setup was reportedly installed in transit shelters in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Calgary, and the system supposedly connects users in the different cities to one another when a conversation is initiated. Unfortunately, Engadget HQ doesn't happen to reside in the land of the Canucks, so for our brethren in the north, why not stop on by and give a shout to a fellow Canadian, eh?

    I think thats pretty cool. When I lived in Austin I rode the bus all the time. I imagine that the Canadian cities listed in the article are convineint to navigate by bus as well. Even though everyone has a cell phone these days and the communication functions of the bill board are pretty null seeing as its not a phone and the radio signal just goes to another to another ad in a different city. Still I think it's a pretty neat marketing gimmick in an age of advertising so dull/dumb, that it makes you want to hit yourself in the head with a hammer form time to time. I urge the Canadians to go forth and play with one of these ads. Be the first on your block to make lewd s*e*x calls to unsuspecting strangers at other bus stops in a different city.


    warning: I am not responsible for the consequences that may ensue if you ***ually harass someone with this device. I only suggested doing so, I did not force the actions upon you. Either way seems like good times could be had abusing this thing.

    Oh my god, that's in front of the public library here in Vancouver.

    I'll go check it out today! Maybe we could organize a PSPMOD meetup?
