The Running Green Man

I’ve done quite a bit of traveling and I’m used to seeing things that are a bit different from what I’m accustomed to, but this one caught me by surprise.  In New York City the green lights for pedestrians have the word “WALK” in capital letters.  In Singapore the green pedestrian light is an image of a guy, accompanied by an audible alarm when you’re able to cross and meant to wait.

The pedestrian green lights in Kuala Lumpur are the coolest I’ve seen though.  What’s great about them is that they’re not just plain and boring; they’re animated!  Audible alarms are nice, especially for people with vision problems, so it would be great if they incorporated that, but watching that green running man is really entertaining.

Here’s a video of it:
