Vibrating Train Windows Will Soon Transmit Ads Directly Into Your Skull

Rest your head at your peril


If you're ever tired on a subway or train, be careful—a new advertising medium might put some ideas in your head. Literally.

I'm sure people who aren't huge nerds also have something to compare this to, but hell if I know what it is.
