The giant eco-friendly LED billboard that has been installed in Times Square in New York City has been turned on for a test run. The sign, which wraps entirely around the building its attached to requires 30 computers churning out 150GB of data for just 30 seconds of video.

The picture itself is supposedly running at "20 times the resolution of standard HDTV," which only makes us want to hook a console up to the display and do some gaming in Times Square.

The sign, developed by D3 LED, will usher in a new era of advertising. Now, you can have your retinas blasted with commercials and products without having to worry about Mother Nature.
