Visualization in everyday life from everyday life (or aka. embodiment?)

Probably have not been deployed but somebody came up with this idea of visualizing traffic lights. Using a sand glass to indicate the time to wait without losing the original color encoding, the new traffic light looks somehow more interesting and expressive.

This reflects a design idea from everyday life (sand glass) and on everyday life (traffic lights). Sounds like similar to Dourish’s theory of embodiment.
