Think your town is cool?

Not as cool as the town of Ísafjörður. Because they’ve found a way to have their crosswalks levitate off the ground!

Okay, not really. Obviously.

The northern Icelandic town commissioned a pedestrian crossing to be painted with lines that seem as if they’re jumping right off the ground.

The goal: to slow down traffic.

Photographer Ágúst G. Atlason of Gústi Productions took these awesome pics showing off the illusion in all its glory.

It’s wild! They legit look like they’re hovering over the ground!

So where’d they get the idea?

Well, some think that Shivrama Krishna’s hand-painted 3D traffic lines in his village of Karimnagar, Telangana, Southern India, were the inspiration.

Take a look and you tell us.

Either way, we need more of these 3D masterpieces out there in public spaces. Because art can be both beautiful AND functional.

Well done all around!
