Nikkei has a post about Toshiba's new Digital Billboard in Tokyo's Akihabara district, where passerbys can dial up a number and connect to an interactive game which is displayed on the giant sign.
Cellphone gamers square off against other players connected through Toshiba's Youtube channel. The number keys are used to control a paintbrush, and the goal is to cover squares on the grid in paint while searching for the Toshiba mascot.
