With all the ways that electronic devices distract people’s attention, I’d think they’d cause you to walk out in the street unaware rather than keep you on the sidewalk safe.
In Germany, every street corner will have a built-in iPod.
But by pinning a distracting electronic device to the sidewalk, making it stationary, they’ve found a way to keep you pinned there too.
Germany is a genius country. Engineers there are distracting you into staying safe. It’s logical, and another great feat of German engineering. But now there’s another problem. How do you get people to cross the street? They’d sit at the traffic light for ages playing with this thing.
