Guerrilla Crosswalk Debuts in France

Jeroen Beekmans reports on the pet project of "urban hacktivist" Florian Rivière to produce light-weight pop-up crosswalks.

Deployed in his home town of Strasbourg, the light-weight "pop-up crosswalks" are made from old carpet, can be rolled up, carried easily, and "can be placed on the street 'so you can cross wherever pleases you,'" notes Riviere.

According to Beekmans, the concept for the project is based on "the idea of roll-up codes in a video game to move from one place to another."

The guerrilla crosswalks are for sale for €10.
