A new initiative to provide street-level wayfinding throughout central London. Some good if unsurprising videos supporting why such a system is warranted:

It looks like a very intriguing concept. Especially that the monoliths and miniliths provide audible descriptions of the surroundings via cell phone. The cartography is interesting as well.

Since they are highlighting POI's, I wonder how hard those maps would be to update over time?

Spotted one on Park Lane, near Marble Arch. I didn't have time to check it out, or try out the audio features, as we were rushing to get to the airport...

During a more relaxed portion of the day (day trip to London, first flight over, last flight back) I did find this cool pictorial map of a piece of Soho in a Starbucks (Wardour Street)
