Crosswalk Button

Sep 25 2007

Some intersections in Seattle have this new style of crosswalk button. It’s an astoundingly good UI, especially among all the awful ones people have to use every day. It’s got a nice little chart to explain what the signals mean, a button that gives a little *click* and turns on a light to let you know that your press registered, and a pleasant chirp to alert you to the walk signal. I get excited when we come to a crosswalk that has one of these instead of the old, hostile silver dome buttons.
