Great idea. How is this effective during the day? Is the message seen only by people who ride the bus at night? kinda slims down your target audience (which is everybody), doesn't it?

Famouse billboard for security light done in u.k.years ago and won tons of awards. Light comes on and illuminated billboard when person approaches.
title: GOTCHA!

That campaign was a different concept. I remember it. It said"GOTCHA" when the security light went on. Anyways, this is still cool.

What a poor imitation...


Add insult to injury then burn the candle at both ends.

yeah, it's not the same idea though is it. If anything that billboard is wasting electricity because it's always on. This one works a lot better.

Buses don't run at night in Cape Town. I visited it.

There needs to be several sensors that detect cars approaching as well as pedestrians.

It's a good idea, it just needs to be more effective in delivering the message to a wider audience and not just the people waiting for the bus.

Done many times but still clever corporate citizenship for Osram

economist had done a hoarding involving a sensor with a huge lightbulb stuck on the hoarding... it illuminates when you walk under it.

ideas....30 minutes nahi toh free.

Since it's a motion sensor, it only activated when there's movement, so if this dude sits still he'll be in darkness right? Kinda annoying to have to be moving all the time to enjoy light.
