The Simpsons: 20th anniversary today

http://designc7.com/journal/the-simpsons-20th-anniversary-today/

From Answers.com

What’s the longest-running prime time entertainment TV show in America? The Simpsons, which celebrates its 20th anniversary today, claims that honor. Homer and Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie make up the world’s favorite animated family. They haven’t gotten where they are without outside help. The list of guest actors who lent their voices — and often their personas — to the show is long and eclectic, and includes actors, musicians, scientists, politicians, reporters, athletes and even an astronaut.

And the Lisa Simpson quote:

“You can’t create a monster, then whine when it stomps on a few buildings.”

Art Lebedev: Air Crosswalk design concept

http://designc7.com/journal/art-lebedev-air-crosswalk-design-concept/

Today I saw a post about Illuminated Air Crosswalk Concept, that’s a concept designed by Art Lebedev Studio, I think it’s a great concept :)

Air Crosswalk design concept

Crosswalk is a dangerous place, where pedestrians can get hit by car. Crosswalks are usually specially marked (with signs, additional traffic lights, etc.) for drivers to have enough time to slow down.
Parallel white stripes (in some places called “zebra”) are used to mark pedestrian crosswalks in most countries.
Our idea is to have double marking with illuminated stripes put above the road. It would solve several problems.
