Wave Walk / Zebra Crossing

Wave Walk

Wave walk is an LED indicator lamp system for pedestrian crosswalk. It shows the duration of the green light period, giving an intuitive sense to us about how much time left for the green light. With the gentle guide of the waves, people can pass the pedestrian crosswalk more securely, and also in an orderly manner. With the time going, green waves will fade one by one. That is an embodied metaphor of green light duration according to which we can judge if the left time is enough for us to walk across the road.
