Points: The Smartest Street Sign In The World

Recently we wrote about Nivea Brazil that surprised us with the smartest print ad in the world, charging your iPhone with solar.

Now Breakfast New York connected objects and installations, creating Points: the smartest, high-tech street sign in the world.

Points: High Tech, Social Street Sign?

Points may look like an ordinary street sign at first. But we would not be writing about it, if it was not high-tech, social and stunning? Welcome to the future…

Points leverages content from Foursquare, Twitter, transportation APIs, RSS feeds and many other online sources.

But more importantly: it can be expanded to work with almost any online data source and adapt to any location where it’s installed.

Points is always aware of the best things going on nearby, and directing you towards them.

My Opinion?
Technology will keep amazing us. And technology will enable us to do more good.

If you doubted big-data, here’s the proof: Real-time big-data is now leading you the way!

Two thumbs up for the math men from Breakfast New York.
