Bangkok Light-up Sign
Submitted by Zach Hyman
This street sign has been hacked for enhanced visibility, as it is positioned in a place lacking decent street-lighting. Though the flashy-flash on the top alerts drivers to the sign's presence, it does not adequately illuminate the message of the sign. This inspired me to ponder whether there were ways for signs to intelligently "know" when they were not adequately visible (inclement weather, nightfall, etc.) and, using integrated (solar?) technology, illuminate themselves and share their message without having to be connected to the electrical grid.
