Control Group — the designers behind the high-tech NYC I/O payphone redesign — is working with the New York City MTA to create new “On The Go” touchscreens for subway stations throughout the city. The new 47-inch displays will deliver real-time station directions including transfers and line alerts, countdowns until train arrival, and service updates, and will also include video cameras, microphones, and Wi-Fi, Fast Co. Design reports. According to Control Group, the kiosks will also feature looping content and help the MTA cultivate more ad revenue. Beginning this year, the MTA will install up to 90 “On The Go” stations throughout NYC.
