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!
