Who gets the Bounty *
A wall made of LCD tiles that people can draw on while they wait. Each tile remains on display for 24 hours before someone else gets to draw over it.
  • Make waiting/queuing more fun and productive.
  • Inspire others and make their day more pleasant.
  • Have your creation seen by others.
How it works
Wall tiles made of LCD tablets. Each tablet accepts one drawing per 24 hours. Once added, it becomes read-only until the next day.
Such walls can be installed in waiting areas, elevators, bus stops, etc.

Turning tiles

In order not to use separate cleaning systems for each tile (proposed in my other contribution) on a "facade" side of the wall, the wall could be composed of tiles that turn. Each tile could have either two paintable sides or even four sides (made as a cube). When the time of the painting on a facade side of the tile would be over, the tile would turn to reveal the clean side and the painted side would be cleaned on the other side of the wall either by a mechanized system or by people working in the establishment. If the tiles were cubes with four sides to paint on, the cleaning could be done less often, this would be convenient if the tiles were cleaned by people.

Sounds perfect. It's more efficient than the original LCD idea, less energy-intensive, and more people-friendly.

Interactivity and competition

After being drawn on, tiles can switch places from time to time to give all creations equally good or bad positions and hence ensure greater visibility for each drawing overall. That is, the ones drawn up top should also go down and vice versa.
This could also make the experience interactive. You could draw something that relates to the tile on the bottom, like characters reacting to something and then view how it changes context as it changes places.
The top unreachable row could be reserved for the best of the week or best of the month. It would make some boring chores like going to the bank or the post office exciting as you'd get to see the leaderboard. It would certainly be a loyalty builder for brands, and banks sure need it.
One, a more reachable row of the tiles can be reserved for a moving slide (like a news ticker) of the drawings from past weeks and the current week in order to let the queued people to vote on them. The top five from the week get to the top of the month and so on.

Everyone contributes to one big story

Everyone gets to draw on their own tile but people can play a game and collectively form one big story on the wall.
When the wall is blank, the first person draws something in their tile. The 2nd person tries to come up with something that would complement the first and adds it to the 2nd tile. The 3rd person comes up with something that continues the story of the previous 2 tiles, and so on.

It could also work without LCD

Using LCD screens for this would be comfortable for quickly removing the image, but I think people might be more attracted to paint something on tiles if the painting was real (non-digital).
A system to clean each tire separately every 24 hours could be installed (a simple mechanized brush/sponge soaked in a solvent to dissolve the paint from a marker or other painting tool would do, it would simply sweep back and forth every 24 hours).
Only after the brush swept the marker would be provided to use for painting on that tile. Each tile could have a tiny drawer under it with a marker or other painting tool(s) inside. The drawer could be opened only after the brush cleaned the former painting and the painting tool(s) should be placed back by the person when they've finished with their painting. A CCTV can be installed near a wall of graffiti tiles to ensure that people won't steal painting tools and won't use their own tools to paint on tiles.

Or to simplify things, just wipe everything off the wall every morning and let people go wild with the provided markers. Simple rules could be provided: "Draw anything, but please use only one tile"
