Name of the article: German company tests ‘talking window’ that pumps ads into brains of train passengers
What if you hear someone is whispering on the train and the voice is from your head?
Dubbed the “talking window,” a platform uses what the company calls “bone conduction” technology, which utilizes a small box affixed to the surface of a window that emits vibrations that the brain translates into sound.
The agency behind the platform hope the technology can be used not only for advertising, but also for music, entertainment, mass transport information, weather reports and so on. Some people worry they may no longer be able to rest their head against train windows. Passengers rest their heads on windows. A small box emits vibrations via train windows that the brain translates into sound.
An illustration of how the device works.
My questions are:
What’s your comment on the ‘talking window’ technology?
What’s your suggestion for the social media platforms?
