Tokyo Flash's Shinshoku: Yet another kick ass time piece from the future

Solo Mobile: Bus Stop Ads Let You Talk to Strangers

These bus stop ads by Solo Mobile show off their push to talk walkie talkie phone features by allowing people in some bus stops to talk to one another. Textually reports.
The ads are running in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, and Calgary.

They remind me of the "Talk to God" booths found in Black Rock City, Nevada which allow you to do the same thing.
