Artisan John Carter has created a cool art piece called The Road Tested Chair that is built from authentic New York City "Walk / Don't Walk" street signs. The signs actually work & light up just like the real thing and can be turned on or off with the included remote control. What's really cool is that you can specify the original scruffy used look or a fresh coat of paint. What's not as cool is the $3,700 price tag. You could cut down, steal your own signs and pay the hefty fines for a lot less. But it's meant to be art and there is apparently some kind of ironic social commentary going on with the "Walk / Don't Walk, er... Sit" theme.
