Leeds Phone Boxes Get Turned into TARDISes, Become Wi-Fi Hubs

It’s about time somebody started painting UK phone boxes in TARDIS blue. My only question is, what took so long? This is now happening in the city of Leeds. They are repainting their red phone boxes in a shade of TARDIS blue. The boxes will also be outfitted with Wi-Fi and touchscreens so they can serve as Wi-Fi hubs.

But that’s not all. The phone boxes are also getting recording devices so that visitors and residents can record their thoughts about Leeds for other people to watch. It will be full of stuff like “Great city, but this TARDIS isn’t even bigger on the inside? Bollocks!”

A company called aql is handling it all. Unfortunately, the boxes won’t be all over the U.K. – just in Leeds. They have to rig them to make the TARDIS sounds though. How could you not add that?
