Designated walking lane for the smartphone obsessed

If you go to any major city, you will experience someone bottle necking sidewalk traffic because some people are looking down at their phones or texting. In China, there are so many people who never look up from their phones when walking that they are affectionately known as the heads-down tribe.

A shopping plaza in Xi'an in China knows it can't alter this consumer behavior, so it is trying to alleviate pedestrian congestion, and frustration, and created a designated 'lane' for the heads-down tribe to walk and free up room for the rest of the shoppers. It's a design innovation that could (should?) very quickly become implemented in most major cities to keep the throngs of citizens living in harmony.
