Cool, but feels overworked.
i.e. the added on controls on top.

I agree with Roger it is a bit overdone, but the idea is great! Advertising as a service = good!

Kind of surprised by the reaction to this, especially CP. IMO, this is a lot cooler:

Seems more relevant. I mean it's cool, but it's not that cool. Gave it a 5/10.

I can't ever trust those, seems fake like most of the "reactions" are from family, friends, or interns.

I know it's cool and all, but how much fossil fuels/electricity is being used to create heat that's immediately dissipating into the air? What a waste. I'm never going there again.

hamdammit i was just thinking the same thing. if they are going to heat a bus station they need to at least keep it closed, otherwise they are wasting SO much energy im sure on a cold minnesota night.
