This subway library has posters of books and scannable barcodes—zap ‘em with your phone to get a 10-page preview while you ride!
A cool project proposed by a group of Miami Ad School students. Commuters who scan a book’s title not only can read the first ten pages of that book, but can learn, via near-field communication (NFC) technology, which nearby library has the book. Read more about the idea on Design Taxi here.
Gotta say, this is a leading contender for bookshelf of the week.
