Now you can fist bump your way across the pedestrian walk

Who knew crossing the road could be so much fun! Spanish designers Alfredo & Alberto have installed ‘walkbumps’ on city crosswalks in the Los Angeles area.

Made from silicon, these ‘walkbumps’ need a good ol’ fist bump to activate the crosswalk signals. If you compare them to the generic buttons we’re all used to pushing, these definitely light up the neighbourhood and make waiting in traffic kind of fun. Right? Who knows if city officials will make these fit bumpin’ ‘walkbumps’ a thing, but here’s hoping the artist installs a few more around the city so the walkbump catches on and we see it in other cities!
