Moss Billboards / Billboards in public places

Moss Billboards

The moss billboard is different from the previous designs in that it uses water to change the appearance of moss for dynamic display. When water is given to the moss, the leaves of it will open and become brighter; when the water supply is stopped, the leaves of it will gradually close and become darker. The bright or dark state of the moss is used as a pixel to compose the display. In addition to using the beneficial effects of the plant itself, this design takes advantage of another affordable feature of moss for dynamic display of information.
