Traffic cones, reflective signage, plastic barriers and caution tape are the sorts of indicators currently used to signify road work and accidents along streets and highways. The Flexi-Safety Light is a proposal for a more universal marker that can be conveniently integrated into the existing setup of a roadside site.
David Gatfield's idea is for an innovative type of pylon that's made from flexible OLED panels that are coated in a urethane skin. The result is a durable and doubled-over translucent post that can be bent and curved to fit into a disorganized environment. The Flexi-Safety Light can be stood up along the shoulder of a freeway or magnetically connected to a sign. It can be charged and programed by a control panel in its protective case of six.
