Manchester University installs Pray-O-Mat prayer booth
A multi-faith praying machine called the Pray-O-Mat has been installed at the University of Manchester. The specially converted photo booth offers more than 300 pre-recorded prayers and incantations in 65 different languages via a touch screen.
The free-to-use machine, designed by German artist Oliver Sturm, is part of a three-year project on multi-faith spaces by the university.
Prayer choices include Aborigine devotional songs and Jewish chants. (...)
