Omsk citizens share warm with others
The project Olympic changes started on January 29 in several cities like Moscow, St.-Petersburg, Samara and Ufa. Today six more cities joined to this project Omsk, Kazan, Rostov-on-Don, Tomsk, Novosibirsk and Ekaterinburg. The idea of the project is very simple in each of the above-listed cities there is a special device. One side of the device has a special platform and the other has an infrared heater. If a person stands on the platform and runs for 30 seconds than a certain amout of energy will be generated and after this energy transfered into warm and a person can choose to which city he or she wants to send this warm. Any person can use this warm all they have to do is to push the button and come closer to the so-called fireplace which is on the other side of the device. By the way you can find out right away how the person who shares his or her warm looks like because all the devices are supplied with cameras which make photos of people and after the pictures are shown on the special screens. That kind of device will operate until March 1 and this project is the second stage of the Olympic changes project. This project was founded before Olympic Games in Sochi in November 2013. Back then in Moscow in one of the metro stations was placed the device which would give out tickets to people if they crouched 30 times. For one month over 11 hundred thousand people took part in this project. Not only Russian mass media wrote about this project but also foreign magazines and the video wich was sent to YouTube was watched more that 3 million times.
