New ‘Subway Libraries’ Encourages Commuters To Read On-The-Go - DesignTAXI.com

New ‘Subway Libraries’ Encourages Commuters To Read On-The-Go - DesignTAXI.com | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

By Loke Shi Ying:

A trio of students from the Miami Ad School—Max Pilwat, Keri Tan and Ferdi Rodriguez—have came up with an innovative concept that allows people to read the first ten pages of popular books while riding the subway. 

Using near field communications (NFC) technology, commuters select the desired book from a list of popular titles and read its first ten pages—upon finishing, the reader will be informed of the closest library location from which they can pick up and read the rest of the book.

Karen du Toit's insight:

Underground or subway libraries! Exciting!

I would also just like the option to download the book afterwards! Not only to go and get it at a nearby library...
