Digital signage continues to grow in popularity, even while traditional signage continues to dominate the overall signage market. However, there’s a type of signage out there that a website called fastcodesign.com picked up on. (Fastcodesign.com is run by the same folks that put out Fast Company magazine.)

It’s called the Vestaboard—a type of sign that uses those old-school flip-card letters to post whatever it is you direct it to say, from your smart phone or tablet, of course. At $1,850 it wouldn’t seem to be something likely to see wide adoption anytime soon, but who knows? It does have its charms. Click HERE to read the story and watch a video about the Vestaboard.
