Cool Facet of Old School European Train Stations Reimagined for Home, Smartphones

We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.

You know those old school train station split-flap thingamajigs that whir and tickety-tick as they update arrival times for travellers? Well, there is now a miniaturized, smartphone-connected version called Vestaboard, and it’s been designed specifically for the home. Check it out:

We’ve totally re-imagined the design of a split-flap display you might see at a train station in Europe. Using your mobile device you can send it messages, get updates, or show patterns and colors…Use our mobile apps on iOS and Android to control your Vestaboard from anywhere, subscribe to popular content or pre-schedule messages.

You can preorder now for expected delivery of December, 2018. The cost? A cool $1,850 USD. That sucks. But still, ticky-ticky-ticky-ticky-ticky…
