Sidewalk Lane For Smartphone Users

To prevent smartphone-related accidents the Chinese city of Chongqing divided the sidewalk in two lanes: one for cell phone users and one for non-cell phone users.

Heavy consumers of mobile devices, who cannot stop writing messages, reading the latest news on Twitter or checking their cell phones, can now text and browse in peace while walking in their reserved sidewalk lane. Separating mobile users from other pedestrians, is this a form of Society of Simulations segregation?

Maybe the jewel that stops people from checking the phone could be another solution!

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
