I found this link to the SPOLUS project a while back but somehow lost it. It involves a live webcam pointed at a bus station in the Czech Republic. The idea of the project – as I’ve read from the site – is to connect people using the transportation system in three ways: 1) capturing visitors waiting for the bus and displaying them on a public screen, 2.) capturing commuters as they get off a bus at the stop, 3.) and allowing online visitors to the site to see the photos and write messages to the commuters – both those waiting and arriving – on the public screen. The site has some good screenshots of what I mean, but the project seems a bit ambitious for its own good. It would have been interesting to see it working and to know if the pedestrians really could influence the online participants?
