Take that, WGBH! The Carpenters Center reports workers today installed the giant LED screen thingee on the side of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters HQ now rapidly nearing completion off the Expressway in Dorchester:

... Although it is 50% transparent, it is capable of displaying a 400 x 600 pixel image which is approximately a 1 megapixel photo. The display can handle millions of colors.

The display will be the highest-resolution transparent LED display in the world and will be seen by over 280,000 viewers per day. There are only one or two transparent LED installations in the US which are approximately half the resolution of this display and 1/3 the potential brightness - making this sign clearly visible in the middle of the day. ...

With photos of the behemoth screen.

... I'm just cruising along (below the speed limit, thank you very much), when all of I sudden I hear a bang and feel a jerk on the back right side of the car. Sure enough, the tire pressure warning indicator lights up.

Unfortunately I had to go a little ways until I found a reasonable spot to pull over, because the right-hand lanes were full of cones and construction equipment.
