Public Poster is similar to electronic board information I often see in many plazas. Compared to traditional public bulletin boards, this electronic board information helps people in finding locations and information easier. Using e-paper screen, Public Poster is a solar powered electronic public bulletin board that displays uploaded information and images. The information is transmitted wirelessly to the Public Poster and the usage of e-paper reduces the consumption of paper and ink. Public Poster collects solar energy during day time for later use at night time. Besides providing information, this unit can also act as a light source in stylish and futuristic way to its environment.

Public Poster uses e-paper to save energy and reduce the consumption of paper and ink. Its display contains several different grid sizes, and the appropriate format and combination can be selected according to need. People can use the Internet or Bluetooth gadgets to dispatch images (in standard formats ranging from A5 to A2 size) or video to Public Poster. The public can easily browse the various pieces of information. Advertisers can simply launch their advertisement at will. When the ad expires, the e-paper will become transparent to indicate that space is available for others to use.
