PLEASE OVERUSE YOUR INTELLIGENCE, IT’S SEXY AS FUCK

Did you know crime is most committed during nighttime? Nighttime is actually the most unsafe time to be alone or stranded somewhere, especially in urban areas this time of day is not the brightest.

Due to urbanization, but even more due to our 24/7 mentality we don’t only live during daytime. We go about all during the day, and we don’t seek safety in our houses after the sun has set. This mentality asks for smart solutions as daytime reduces robbery by 51%, murder by 43% and rape by 56%.

So how can we make the┬ácity smarter, and the daylight vibe captured for the dark night?┬áDesigner Connor McManus from Detroit, USA, thinks he got the answer to this serious problem and he named it; “AUXILIUM the smart sidewalk”.

The Auxilium is a self sustaining unit that replaces the need for streetlights, helps navigate people through urban areas and makes money by selling ad space to nearby businesses.

I like the idea of combining different functions in to one efficient new design, it does not only look great, it also puts different needs together and make them work. I would love to see this in urban areas as I believe this would definitely help increase safety during nighttime, what about you?
