Real-time digital signpost

The digital signpost will be designed to give visitors information about specific events or locations, and will base its data off Twitter feeds and other social networks.
The sign will feature three, arrow-shaped, LED-equipped screens that will pivot around the post. Users will be able to select the information they need, such as "Food" or "Transit" from an interface at eye-level, and the signs will move to point in the direction of the desired location. Since the data is digital, the categories will adapt to list only the restaurants that are open at the time, for example.
The sign can also stream data from RSS news feeds, transportation hubs, Twitter and Facebook, allowing it to guide people toward the next incoming train, best happy hour or where the most social activity is currently located.
