The Beijing ‘Happiness Index’
On the morning of July 5, interactive bus shelters appeared in Beijing, the last stop for the nationwide activity. At a happy bus shelter in Dongshixikou, a testing board showing the “Beijing happiness index” attracted passers-by. When someone presses the laughing or crying face, LED lights representing happiness or unhappiness flash, and the number on the counter increases by one.
