Video: The Talking Window: Vibrating subway windows broadcast sound (and immediately annoy riders)

Let’s take the technology deaf people use to hear and use it to sell shit.

Sounds ridiculous and as I type this I really hope it is. Like something from TheOnion or an April’s Fools joke 3 months late.

Anyway, “BBDO Düsseldorf has developed a special window for public transportation that uses a transmitter to silently release high-frequency oscillations that your brain will convert into sound.” The creative on these messages will have to be very clever because the annoyance factor is probably higher than a pop up ad. We shall see if it catches on.
