      Another reason to not use the train......

      Sky to broadcast adverts directly into train passengers' heads - Telegraph

      Sky has developed technology to transfer voice adverts from train windows directly and silently into commuters' heads.

      Currently only for the German trains, I can see those wires being cut by tired commuters.

      Bone Conduction has been used for many years in the Diving industry and with some amateur divers too. How can they get away with suggesting that it has only been used by deaf people and the military?

      I suspect the 'new Sky technology' has to do with delivering the advert to the window rather than from the window to the head. Does it work better on people with thick skulls?

      If I wanted to lean my head against the window with the specific intention of falling asleep, I would place something between my head and glass to stop this happening.
      Why would anyone want this happening if they want to sleep or snooze?

      I agree dog-man. Hence why I can see the wires being cut. See the picture below which I believe is one.

      So we agree it's a daft idea?

      Definitely not one I would be happy with.

      If I am on a long train journey I may put my laptop on so that I can do something with it, but if I were tired and wanted to rest my head somewhere, the last thing I would be wanting is some annoying advert pushing something when I want some quiet time.

      P.S. Yes I do have headphones for the Laptop and my Mobile.
