At the 'Cannes Lions' website, the report on this technology concludes with
Welcome to the advertising world of minority report.
So they think the world of a dystopian novel is a good thing? That was such a tone-deaf comment that I thought I must be reading a satirical web site, maybe something related to Adbusters. But no. They're serious.
If they didn't do advertising, and soft music, otherwise some nature sounds instead that would be great for those trying to sleep. I'd just avoid the sound of running water for those stuck on mass transit.
Of course they want to put advertisements into people's heads, they're scum. -- I distrust those people who know so well what god wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires- Susan B.

Does this have any NEGATIVE effects on the brain. Some people dispute whether voice sleep aids have any positive effects...sure.
quote: It is proposed that REM sleep adds creativity by allowing "neocortical structures to reorganize associative hierarchies, in which information from the hippocampus would be reinterpreted in relation to previous semantic representations or nodes.
So creativity aspects of the brain may be effected just by sleeping but what of the distractions/voices.
So then they change the design under the train window housing. Quite easily. You just need to buy new trains that offer the mod. -- Paradigm Shift beta test pilot. "Dying to defend one's small piece of suburb...Give me something global...STAT!
The only problem I see with this is what if you just wanted to sleep? I can tell you they wouldn't be getting my business.
You could in reality bypass this with some ear buds and your favorite mp3s.
Normal sound received through the ears only needs a 3+db difference to be the dominant sound....can the same be said for this? -- Paradigm Shift beta test pilot. "Dying to defend one's small piece of suburb...Give me something global...STAT!
I'm not so sure about that. Since this technology is adapted from that used to help deaf people hear, you might just get a mash-up of whatever is in the ear buds and whatever is vibrating your scull. Just don't lean your head on the window, I guess. -- It is easier for a camel to put on a bikini than an old man to thread a needle.
Because it requires close contact between head and a hard surface, here is where it could be useful. In a bar, when a folk had a lot of drinks and can't handle his head anymore, the desk, where he puts it, emits "No more drinks for you, pal..." -- Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
The covert messages sent via the windows turn into Jim Baker sermons when the windows are dirty. And the NSA is able to suck information from your mind via these windows -- The new Oldsmobiles are in early this year!

Subliminal advertising was unleashed on the public before thoroughly being tested. My concern would be for schizophrenia suffers on medication to reduce internal dialog, suddenly finding themselves exposed to a source of voice that dosen't seem viable to their present mindset also.
It could play out as a positive for a majority of sufferers expanding their knowledge of what the mind is capable of perceiving yet the ones that fail to comprehend could have adverse effects. I.e. God just instructed me to take a holiday, so i'm off without concern or consideration or far worse. -- Paradigm Shift beta test pilot.
