Talk about a Big Screen!

From a Forbes article, Field of Screens: self-illuminated astro-turf! Imagine a sports field also being it's own advertising board, and big screen TV. Maybe ads (and ad revenue) between plays, and helpful graphics such as that yellow "first down" line from your TV, now on the field itself.

A manufacturer has figured out how to incorporate fibre optics into fibrous material of astro turf. Used today on internally-lit Christmas trees, the technology is two years from commercialization in turf. A myriad of uses, not thought of before, could follow on the heels of this innovation.
