24 hour information machine

24 hour information

A finding from the other side of the globe, this one was sent to me from my brother in New Zealand. Thanks Remco!

What we see here is a ‘24h-touch screen information display’.

But it’s locked inside the store and thus unusable… What’s more, it is turned on and asking to be touched :) To me what adds to the fun is the dissonance between the happy font of the ‘closed’ sign, and the firm and decisive font which says “touchscreen: 24 hour”. It’s as if the ‘closed’ sign is laughing at us :)

As the solution is so blazingly obvious I’ve decided to leave it as an exercise to the readers :)
