Glass Sign: Solar Powered Pedestrian Crossing

20130501-131313.jpg
This is one of those products that I can’t believe hasn’t been invented sooner. The Glass Sign is a solar powered pedestrian crossing, designed by Almasov Aibek. The sign is switched off when not in use, and is then activated when a pedestrian swipes the signal pole. Throughout the day, the sign is charged with solar energy and the ‘walk’ signal appears in black. After dark, the signal comes up in a vibrant red colour, so that it is visible against the depth of the night. The walking signals stay active for a period of time determined by the width of the road. It’s a very clever idea and looks good when being used. I’d love to see a picture of it in use at night, but haven’t found any yet…
