Points is a street sign that looks just like any other – what makes it so unique is the fact it can update the information on its display in real-time, creating a reactive street sign for a variety of events.

Made of three arms point in different directions, you would be hard pressed to tell it apart from a normal street sign – until the arms start to rotate towards a new direction, changing the text on display at the same time.

Points leverages content from Foursquare, Twitter, transportation APIs, RSS feeds and other online sources – provided it has an Ethernet or WiFi connection. More importantly, it can be expanded to work in a variety of situations such as a music festival, with the signs displaying the next performer on a particular stage and moving to redirect attendees.
