Around the Nation: NYC experiments with touchscreen subway maps

Check out these interactive, touchscreen subway maps that have debuted at Grand Central Station in New York City.

The project is a collaboration between MTA and Control Group, a local design and technology consultancy firm. Importantly, the city isn’t paying for them. Control Group is footing the bill, in hopes that the kiosks will eventually pay for themselves with advertising revenue.

Check out the video above to see the full demo and share your feedback on the technology in the comments section below. Worth using? Or is it easier to just punch in your destination on your smartphone to get directions and information?
