3-D painting used as a speed bump, Orchestra busts out the grooves on a delayed flight, Daily Page

  • Print

 
In an inventive (and slightly unnerving) move, the city of Vancouver will release a new brand of speed bump that uses an optical illusion to keep drivers alert. A painting of a child on pavement (as in the photo above) will appear to be three dimensional when cars get within 100 feet of it, giving the drivers enough time to slow to a stop. Once the cars pass the ideal viewing distance, the image returns to its two dimensional form.

MISCELLANEOUS MOVIE NEWS!
 
A movie about Ronald Reagan's life is in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the feature film, titled Reagan, will follow his life from boyhood to Hollywood actor to becoming the 40th president. The $30 million production will be based on two best-selling Reagan biographies, The Crusader and God and Ronald Reagan, both written by Paul Kengor. So far, no actors are attached to the project.
