This smart-powered pedestrian pavement could save your life


The world in front of us is not as stimulating as the one on our phone. So we look down and instead text, play Pokemon, or Snapchat our outfit.

Sadly, we are used to walking blind.

studies have shown that around one in three people get distracted by their phones when crossing the street.

While some people criticize modernity, others are designing around it. Australian firm Büro North created Smart Tactile Paving to put a red stop and green walk signals into the pavement. This technology may save your life when you think you are just killing time.

Of course, this smart design will not prevent pedestrians from bumping into each other. To increase our field of vision and catch the moment, we can use Casey Neistat’s Beme app.
