We've seen similar concepts in the past, but for some reason people can't get over the idea of adding lasers to crosswalks, so here's another one. The Guardian crosswalk was designed by Ho-Joon Lim's and features lasers that either provide a visual barrier for pedestrians so they know when NOT to walk, and a lane for them to walk in when they are. No word how much the systems would cost to implement, but I'd argue anything above $0 is too much. I'm sorry, but if you're having trouble mastering existing crosswalks I'm not sure life outside your apartment is for you.
Thanks to Quartercroc, who crossed the street the old fashioned way: launching himself over traffic in a catapult. Awww yeah, I want to walk to the liquor store with YOU.
