    Pros: 

    Unique, fun, and customizable!

    Cons: 

    I've gone this long without one

    Love having this in our studio. It's handy for us but also never fails as an eye catcher

    Will Haude has used this product for one month.

Product looks great! Do you have API access for the trains with live data, such as the L train? Also any plans to make the API public? Submitted a request to the MTA Google group like a month ago with no luck. 😬

@connorgutman we are currently working on making the API public!

Wait, it only shows NYC Train information. Tell me we can chose what to display on there, like our upcoming Release Deadlines or Calendar Events...

@joshuapinter it allows for other things to be displayed. Shows bitcoin price on an example

Dig the idea, but super pricey for an LED matrix in in a wooden case.

Was looking for NYC Train Sign of PH before attempting to hunt it, Really love the idea and how it can extend further with the API. Glad that you guys are using Gather on Shopify. We have earned an extra cool badge for that!
