Smart Sidewalks Allow You To Cross Roads Even With Your Eyes Glued To Your Phone Screen
With rise in number of smartphone users, rises the addiction to phones. We've all been guilty of not looking up from our phones even when walking on a busy street. This puts not just us in danger, but also creates a nuisance for drivers.
Australian firm Büro North has come up with a concept that allows people to safely cross a road without having to look up from their phone screens. It proposes to embed LED lights that flash green when it is safe to cross, into sidewalks.
This system - called Smart Tactile Paving - will also flash red to indicate when it is unsafe to cross, thus preventing you from getting into a sticky situation.
I can already imagine the smiles lighting up the faces of all you Pokemon Go addicts out there!
