    Link: Why Can`t Every Building Have This? - The world would be a much less confusing place if every building had a system like this.

    Nice how there are no orange, cyan, nor purple lines to go with the corresponding labels. Seems even MORE confusing that way.

    Nope, still confusing consider two colors just sort of disappear. Would`ve found rm135 easily enough, now I`ve given up before I started because it`s clear it has fallen into an abyss.

    So now you have hallways full of people bumping into each other because they`re all looking up at the ceiling.

    They sometimes do it on the floor, better to have people look at the floor than in the ceiling.

    @greenbasterd

    Uh, there are 6 rooms not 5.

    Obviously this system would be intended for visitors who had never been there before...

    @TKD MASTER

    It goes down the left side of the wall, the 156 however is not in sight. I`m guessing it`s on the wall like the opposite side.

    Because most people would walk into everything while focusing too much on following the colors above their heads. I know I would at least :3

    A lot of physics labs have this but it`s smarter because the lines are on the wall, not the ceiling, so you can watch where you`re walking.

    Some hospitals in the UK use a similar system with coloured lines on the floor. It works well.

    The black mesa complex in the original Half Life had coloured lines on walls and floors as well.
    So yeah, been moderately commonplace since the late 90`s at the very least.
