I received some very interesting correspondence today. A while back I blogged about the ‘Virtual Wall’ crosswalk; a crosswalk that projects laser beams across the street, depicting pedestrians walking. This gives drivers the idea that walkers are in the crosswalk, and they shouldn’t drive through it for fear of either hitting a pedestrian or damaging their car with the laser beams.
Well, today I got an email from someone allegedly working at a government agency in the United Arab Emirates. They had questions about the Virtual Wall and wanted to know if I could provide more information, because they actually want to install some of these at their busier intersections!
Cool! I say let them be the guinea pigs, then we can all follow if it works (and if we can afford it. We’re not exactly United Arab Emirates-rich around here).
