A Laser Light Show in the Crosswalk

Will laser-projected pedestrians make crossing the street safer in South Korea?

A new concept in pedestrian safety must be seen to be believed. Courtesy of online mag Yanko Design:

"The Virtual Wall provides a barrier made up of plasma laser beams depicting pedestrians doing what they do best and any car that crosses that barrier suffers the consequences. Okay so maybe those lasers aren't powerful enough to do any harm but the effect is enough to make drivers and pedestrians alike follow crosswalk rules to the tee."
