With hundreds of jaywalkers fined in just three weeks and tons of money to spend, the Dubai authorities are looking into reinventing the crosswalks.

In order to accomplish this, they turned to the latest technology available and of course, not the cheapest at all. As you can see in the photos below, some high end video projectors will  display an image of people crossing the street. Of course, the “imaginary people” are portrayed in red colors, to reinforce the stop light.

No idea how much such a system might cost, but I’m pretty sure it’s more expensive than the paint you see on the street :)
