New Device Turns Windows Into Ads By Beaming Sound Into Your Head



New technology developed by Britain's Sky Go and advertising agency BBDO Dusseldorf can turn vibrating bus and train windows into hi-tech advertisements by beaming sound into commuters' heads.

The nefariously clever device is installed on a window, where it releases high-frequency oscillations. The brain then converts those oscillations into sound.

Lean your head against the glass, and the window talks to you.

The process is called "bone conduction", which sounds rather ominous. Rightly so. This technology could stop thousands of drained and groggy commuters from dozing on their trips home. (Sam Clench)
