Confessional in a box

Supplementing our analysis - illumination! - of the container market, we would like to tear of the hard exterior, exposing the spiritual side of the industry. 

Just look at the Pop Up Confessional, a brainchild of Thrd Party Film, designed and fabricated by Dash 7 Design, and funded by HBO.

Its outer shell is made of an actual shipping container, and houses an Artifiial Intelligence named Conversational Companion (CoCo in short, programmed in Node.js and Phyton, and processing the voice to text over the Internet) with whom people can talk about the "hidden and unseen aspect of their lives."

Since the whole project was fimed for HBO in diffrent locationsall over New York, the "secret" part is rather doubtful. Presumably, with each confession, CoCo becomes a better, uh, conversationalist. Are we about to witness the transportation and digital technologies make a bid for our souls?
