Finland makes our buses look crap, as well as our phones. “Every bus and tram in Helsinki and the surrounding cities of Vaanta and Espoo are being fitted with Linux servers and GPS units. Every bus and tram in the conurbation will not only become a wireless hotspot serving broadband internet throughout the vehicle — for free — but every bus and tram is visible on a Google map (the beta version is at tinyurl.com/2gftso) that uses the same real-time passenger information as the controllers in their command centre.” Hat-tip to Guy Beres.
Not only has Finland brought us Nokia, they’re also responsible for Jack and Jez of Zero Patrol, who show us how to… Tiskotansi! Must-see video. As is this one and this one and this one and lots more. Hat-tip to Boing Boing.
