Android Red Flag Man

I have posted before about "red flag men". Basically, they are human warning lights - waving a red flag. That is his job. Now it seems that his job is going to see a slow death! On the highway across Yas Island towards the Dubai highway a number of mechanical "red flag men" have appeared. Powered by a 12v battery, they can operate 24/7, need no midday break, water, visa or accommodation.

I have attempted to slow down a clip I took so you can see (with a freeze frame part way through)..............

If they are a dying breed, personally I will miss them!

Red flag men RIP !
