Walking around the streets of London any tourist can see and take a picture with the iconic London phone booths. Proctor & Gamble took the iconic phone booths and added a bit of a twist. Rather than the above phone booth containing a phone, it had a computer hooked up to the internet for visitors to use while at the P&G Family Home. Could this be the future of phone booths across America? With everyone carrying around cell phones and needing WiFi, it seems that almost everywhere we visit they talk about keeping up with technology and adapting to athletes’ and visitors’ needs. The US Training Facilities went from 4 computers at the ’96 Atlanta Games up to 20 computers by the time they went to Athens in 2004. Little did they know by 2004 no one needed the computers because everyone had their own laptop. Now they have internet stations where athletes can plug their personal computer in to the internet. Could Proctor & Gamble have created a new product for themselves? The Internet Booth….only time will tell.
