You’ve heard of Joe Dirt? Well meet Joe Safety; probably the creepiest thing in transportation you’ll run into. Joe is one of many kinds of robots and mannequins used to direct traffic through Japan’s construction zones. Why not use a blinking arrow like we do here in the states? That’s just no fun. The Atlantic Cities explains the reasoning behind artificially intelligent flaggers and has pictures of other kinds being used. Creepy. Just creepy.
