The Pixel Track by BERG tries to find a happy medium between old and static signage that needs to be completely changed by hand, and devices like LED displays that are adjusted through computers, but still take up significant battery life.
Pixel track "uses a scanning mechanism for updating pixels, meaning that the display consumes no power when it remains static. Behavior is controlled by services in the cloud, where a small passive electro mechanical ‘train’ component – similar to a toy railroad – moves up and down to update the individual units rather than a large array of circuits," as stated on DesignBoom. This method allows people to adjust signage without worrying about battery life or the manual labour involved with updating traditional designs.
