If you like ride your bike at night or take relaxing strolls under a darkened sky, then Poland wants to make that a little safer for you with their Solar-Powered Glowing Walkways. These aren’t powered by LEDS, they are pathways that glow right under your feet.
This glowing lane is completely charged by the sun. It’s made from a specially designed synthetic material that can give off a glow for up to 10 hours after spending the day under the sun, collecting that good energy.
Of course, this won’t be a great option for wooded paths and the like but for running and bike paths that don’t have a lot of tree coverage, this can really light up the night without out requiring any additional power draws. This innovation would provide light even for those paths that are not greatly traveled which usually fall prey to disrepair due to budget constraints. It’s just being tested for now but if this takes off, we may be able to say bye bye to street lights and hello to lit streets.
