Bendable
lights which can be integrated into walls or wrapped around poles are being trialed in 32 U.S. cities.

According to News.com, the monitors are made by Ceelite, which are making signs equipped with CeeLite's lights on the sides of its buses. The signs require four watts of power per square foot and can measure up to 12 feet long and 30 inches high. A sheet is then covered with an advertisement.
