Contextual reminders

“IF you drink, don’t drive”

If you’re reading this, you may be needing this.

Spotted in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong, at a place that transforms from a popular lunchtime spot for local workers into a working class watering hole once the evening shift lets out (back when bars were still open). This low-fi accessory at the bottom of the urinal holds a contextually relevant reminder which, if you find yourself in a position to be reading, may mean that you would be wise to accept its advice.

What are other novel examples of just the right information being supplied at just the right time? When will other parts of our surrounding environment begin naturally understanding and reacting to our current state, hopefully in ways that seek to keep us and others safe?
