Smart touchscreen displays with internet connections are being installed inside 250 phone booths in New York City next month as part of a pilot program by the company City24x7.

According to the NY Post, these 32-inch screens will let people make Skype calls, access their emails and will even act as wi-fi hotspots. You will also be able to view local information like nearby restaurants, traffic updates, sales at shops in the area, safety alerts and landmark information in multiple languages.
