What do you do with old posters?

PostersHallIn academia, it is common practice to make posters of your abstracts for national conferences. Once you are done presenting, what DO people do with the posters? I have several posters rolled up in my garage collected over the years.

If the answer is nothing, why can’t we find a more creative way to display static (or even video) content during abstract sessions? Perhaps use a large LCD screen instead of posters taped to a backboard?

Or a top-down video projection of your “poster” on a white canvas screen?

Clearly the technology exists, but costs are still prohibitive on a large-scale basis (i.e. convention hall with hundreds of abstracts). Just a question to make you go hmm.
