Motorized Road Construction Traffic Signal Mannequin

    This was a highlight of my trip to Tokyo! These are motorized and life-like. Better to risk the lives of a mannequin than a human.

    Check him out in action:

      LOL...true. It is very elaborate for just a signal friends asked why not just use a "sign"?

      I think people are more responsive to the human form, and so are more apt to pay attention to a robot or mannequin than a sign perhaps. It's why we always see human faces in things such as an electrical socket.
