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.
