how not to be roadkill
We've all seen the jackasses that text away on their cell phone as they unknowingly bump into you, trip on the curb, or walk into a poll, fountain, sign or one of a thousand different obstructions that normal people never run into. And frighteningly enough, some of them even walk right into oncoming traffic as they cross the street.
Well, this new Android app called WalkSense may put a kink in Darwin's theory, alerting said Jackasses to oncoming traffic so they can get out of the way without missing an OMG or WTF. Actually sensing an oncoming car, the app will vibrate and beep to alert the user - although it only works right now for the direction your phone is pointed in, so if I were you, I'd put the phone down and look both ways.
