'Droid Does' a Time Square on Black Friday

Verizon and Google in partnership with Reuters and R/GA would roll out a “first-of-its-kind” interactive campaign in Times Square, New York. Well now, when someone calls 888-376-4336 between 12:30-2:00pm, and between 6:30-8:00pm and does a Google Search by voice, the results from Google are automatically displayed on the electronic Reuters and NASDAQ signs in Times Square.

On Black Friday, Times Square’s gigantic interactive search-by-voice demo will be running for 20 hours straight. So if you’re in the area and have a chance to take a break from your shopping, or if you want to see your next shopping destination displayed on a Google map on the huge signs, give the demo a try and let us know what you think. And for those of you that aren’t in Manhattan on that day, you can still watch the action online.
