Courtesy of Holy Kaw, a stoplight that lets you know how much time you have to make the light before it changes. This is a great use of creative visualization for safety and tapping into human behavior.
From Yanko Design, (Designer: Thanva Tivawong) the Sands Of Traffic Times!:
The Sand Glass is a new look at traffic lights. Surely people must be frustrated with the current design, which is why we have seen THREE DIFFERENT DESIGNS recently. Make this the fourth dimension using the sand-hour-glass as its model. LED lights trickle down to make an obvious statement, regarding the time left for the lights to change. Easy and intuitive.
