Epic Links: Urban Speaker

So, this is just flat-out awesome.

A megaphone located in New York’s Tompkins Square Park is set up so that if you call it, your voice is broadcast to the nearby public.

The Urban Speakeris a new art project consisting of a speaker mounted on a pole in New York’s Tompkins Square Park. Simply call 979-997-3041 and your voice will be broadcast to the passersby on New York’s streets. Say something nice.

Now, the ultimate job would be to find a live camera stream of the area, call, and have fun watching the ensuing reactions. It sounds like something Balls of Steel would do.

Or, then again, it would be a nice thing to say something encouraging. You know, brighten up someone’s day a bit.
