Hey you Guys its Carlos D.
So you guys know about those small tiny cars, that can only fit two people in, yeah those are “Smart” cars branded and created by Smart <— thats a link if
you don’t know what Smart Cars are.
So basically this articles explains what crossing a street is really, like when you see a man in red just standing there it makes you not pay attention to it. Sometimes you just see red and just stop. Sometimes you just ignore that and see if there are any cars coming by. Think about it for a quick second… what do you really do at a crossing light … Do you stare at the signals? Do you stare at the color? or do you catch a glimpse and stop?
How can we make our cities safer places? For example, with traffic light manikins who entertain waiting pedestrians. Discover our “dancing traffic light manikins”.
Well smart Designed a fun and digital way to make crossing fun and safe for city like environments. Basically what happens is that you go into a booth a large square shape, yet designed and build by Smart. You go inside and you start dancing. Digitally a camera signal sees your moves while your dancing to a song and it transfers those moves electronically, and captures it and puts it on the “pixel” screen on the signals. Pedestrians reactions are incredible and funny. It shows how technology and art can come together to create safer crossing environment, and put a smile on your face.
Below is the video please watch.
Some of my questions are … How do you think this type of designed technology can effects us as human? Why or Why not?
Do you believe by using digital effects we can save lives?
Thanks so much you guys !
