I like when I come across innovations like this because not a lot of ideas spring out of the sector of roadside safety. Regular pylons can be extremely dangerous, as you well know if you've driven on a freeway and had to dodge a renegade cone in the middle of the lane. The Air Cone Tape highly reduces the risk of accidents at the hands of pylons.
Designed by Hoyoung Lee, the Air Cone Tape literally comes out of a roll. Once ejected from the machine, the pylons automatically inflate to create a single line of soft shells.
The worst thing that could happen if you hit the Air Cone Tape would be to get startled over a loud popping sound. I'll take that over going into the ditch.
