Sand Glass LED Traffic Lights by Thanva Tivawong
Several years ago when I visited Estonia, I really liked their Traffic Lights because they had these electronic LED timers showing exactly how much time was left for the lights to change.
Now Thanva Tivawong takes it into another level by introducing even more intuitive and visually appealing hourglass-inspired design.
Would you replace the current classical stoplights with these new Sand Glass Traffic Lights?
the double yellows are confusing, fix thats and its alright.
The yellow are pretty confusing, maybe a video could help, but if you need to explain your design, then it is not a good design.
oh, i’d love to see such thing in the streets :D
I don’t care about the colorblinded people! I want it on the streets!
It’s so easy to forget all those color-blinded people when you are normal :) this cool concept could never become a reality just because of this little thing designer has forgotten. However, a little innovation could help – lets say additional lcd screen (or the same screen but enlarged to the left or right) with classical traffic light circles.
And colorblind people will use this, how?
with the help from a friend who hasn’t got colorblindness
“However, a little innovation could help – lets say additional lcd screen (or the same screen but enlarged to the left or right) with classical traffic light circles. ”
We could place an illuminated stop bar which is on for the red phase and off at other times, this is already in use in Houston, Texas.
Total colourblindness is very rare and also associated with reduced visual acuity, below the driving test line.
Also, red-green colourblindness is not as common as is widely thought, most of that portion do not have blindness to any colour but a weakness. As the stop wolud be very red and the proceed very green, red-green colourweak people would not normally have any problems telling the difference.
