Art Lebedev Luxofor lights

Art Lebedev Studios recently introduced its Luxofor traffic light prototype that will use a square lens lit up by superbright diodes to make it more visible to drivers and pedestrians. Traditionally, traffic lights have been round to allow the spherical light-bulb to light up the lens more evenly. Art Lebedev's new design offers more efficient packaging, as the square light fills up the same space taken up by a round lens more completely.

The Luxofor traffic light is strictly a concept at this stage, but the Art Lebedev team pledges its cooperation with road safety councils and local authorities on improving and designing road markings and signs as well as traffic and city lights, among others.
