OfficePod

Here is an interesting idea being pitched in the UK: The OfficePOD. It isn't just a garden shed, it is a "full service system for employers to lease home offices for their employees to reduce costs, attract and retain staff, reduce CO2 emissions, increase productivity and adapt to change."

Bus Shelters in Amsterdam Point Out Fat People

The program took off at the initiative of the Netherlands-based health club operator Fitness First. How does it work? Well, the principle is very simple. While the person sits on the near bench, the machine tells the person's actual weight. On the back of the bench, there is a chart that shows if the person weighs more than they should.

Their incessant humming, occasional insectoid twittering and subliminal noise can be plenty annoying, but when they get abandoned, the tangle of cables, machinery and crumbling towers (combined with deep silence) makes it visually much, much worse..
