Texting（发短信）walkers aren't just an annoyance to other walkers 不只是其他 人的烦恼, Australian researchers armed with 运用 movie special-effects techn ology have determined scientifically 电影特效技术进行研究后发现 that they'r e threats to 威胁 themselves. Using motion-capture technology similar to th at used for films, 通过运用类似《霍比特人》(The Hobbit)等电影中的动作捕捉技 术， researchers concluded 得出结论 that texting while walking not only affe cts balance but also the ability to walk in straight line. “Some people like checking emails while walking to work in the morning” said the study co-author Hoorn, “but they may not know it has a serious effect on the s afety of themselves”. Other facts have also proved this. A tourist from Taiwan walked off a pier near Melbourne 走了墨尔本附近的一个码头 last month while checking Facebook 是一个联系朋友的 社交工具, bringing a sudden and icy end to a penguin-watching visit. Another person who was too wrapped up in his phone to notice dangers walked straight into the fountain in front of a shopping mall. 一位来自台湾的游客在翻看 Facebook 时走下了墨尔本附近的一座码头， 给自己的观赏企鹅之旅画上了一个突然而又冰冷的句号。 又有一个行人盯着手机结果忽 视了前方障碍，在一家商场前面，直冲冲地走进了一个喷泉里。 The Australian study involved 27 volunteers, a third of whom admitted h aving knocked into objects while texting 三分之一的人承认撞到物体在发短信时. They were asked to walk 8.5 meters three times—once without phones, once while reading text and once while writing text, when eight cameras recorded their actions.他们被要求走三遍 8.5 米长的路，一次不用手机，一次边走边阅读讯 息，还有一次边走边输入讯息，同时有八个摄像头捕捉他们的行动。 They found the volunteers using the phone walked slower, and, more seriously, they locked their arms and elbows in like “robots”, which forced their heads to move more, throwing themselves off balance. 研究发现，参与实验的人在使用手机时行走速度变慢， 更为严重的是，他们会（用研究人员的话来形容）像“机器人”那样锁住自己的手臂和 肘部，这使得他们的头部晃动幅度更大，导致身体失去平衡。“In a pedestrian（步行的） environment, inability to maintain a straight path would be likely to increase potential for traffic accidents”, said Mr. Hoorn. “The best thing to do is to step aside and stop, or keep off the phone.” 研究发现，参与实验的人在使用手机时行走速度变慢、步伐变小（打字时速 度最慢） 。更为严重的是，他们会（用研究人员的话来形容）像“机器人”那样锁住自 己的手臂和肘部，这使得他们的头部晃动幅度更大，导致身体失去平衡。 Authorities world-wide have taken note. Signs on Hong Kong's subway system advise passengers in three languages to keep their eyes off their phones. Police and transport authorities have highlighted the danger in Singapore, where the Straits Times newspaper recently declared cellphone-distracted road crossing as “bad habit No. 2” contributing to the rising number of road deaths. Some U.S. states, including New York and Arkansas, are considering bans on what they're calling phone jaywalking. 世界各地的有关部门都注意到 了这一点。 香港地铁标识用三种语言提醒乘客不要看手机。新加坡警方和交通部门都强 调了这一行为的危险性，当地《海峡时报》(Straits Times)近期将过马路分神看手机 列为导致道路死亡案件增多的“第二大恶习” （第一大恶习是交通拥挤时骑自行车的人
不从车上下来） 。 包括纽约州和阿肯色州在内的美国部分州也正在考虑出台法规禁止在 过马路时打电话的行为。
