Telescope sign board / direction board

Telescope sign board
Telescope sign board

This village direction board was invented by using the large field of view because of lower buildings in the village unlike the city. It also aims at the exact place, not just showing the vague direction.
Like a lighthouse, it directs the destination with the light during the night time and it also work as a street lamp. First timers in the village can easily find their way around during the day and night without any help.
