27th October 2017 - It's not an optical illusion - just looks like one

Thought for the day:"Dr Frankenstein entered a body building competition - then realised that he had misunderstood the objective"

Found this today - New way to slow down drivers near zebra crossings ...

 Some stills from the concept - which is from Iceland

In the small fishing town of Ísafjörður, Iceland, an exciting development in road safety has just popped up – almost literally. A new pedestrian crossing has been painted that appears to be 3D by way of a cleverly-detailed optical illusion.

Not only does the innovative design give foot-travelers the feeling of walking on air, it also gets the attention of drivers, who will be sure to slow down their speed once they spot the seemingly floating ‘zebra stripes.’ Icelandic environmental commissioner Ralf Trylla called for its placement in Ísafjörður after seeing a similar project being carried out in New Delhi, India. With the help of street painting company Vegmálun GÍH, his vision became a reality.
