Interactive User Interfaces: Pelican Crossing.

Interactive interfaces used within public spaces can purely be used as a means to display information about the surrounding area, to give information about a museum exhibit or it can give a fully  computer generated experience.

Probably one of the most used/yet unnoticed interactive interfaces that we all use is the push button interface on a Pelican crossing; we press the button and then wait for the instruction to cross the road safely. The Pelican crossing was introduced in the U.K. in 1969.
