Walk, Don’t Walk

Imagine a force field generator that would protect pedestrians from oncoming traffic that failed to stop at a traffic light. Sounds great, right?

Well this isn’t that.

It is, however, an interesting proposal by product designer Hanyoung Lee entitled Virtual Wall - that is meant to protect the pedestrian crossing the street by creating a more physical barrier than the typical stop light.

Would this work? I’d guess it would, for a little while anyways - seeing some kind of laser show displaying moving images of people crossing the street, instead of just an 8 inch diameter red light, will probably catch people’s attention. At least until they get used to these things…
