Netherlands will soon contain glow-in-the-dark roads

One stretch of street in the Netherlands may make one sense that it’s all too similar to playing a video game. The conventional power sucking streetlights have been replaced with glow-in-the-dark pavements for a 500m stretch of road. The street paint which is the source of the glow-in-the-dark effect employs solar powered fueled photograph luminescent powder, giving a Tron-like effect to the spectator.

There are additionally plans to fuse wind-controlled lights that sparkle just when automobiles are adjacent. Along with this there are also plans for creating specific lanes where electric autos could energize while they drive. It is expected that the glow-in-the dark road will need to pass a few government security and toughness tests before streetlights can be completely made redundant.

This is simply an evidence of the original idea created by Studio Roosegaarde. He plans to utilize parks as a testing ground for new forms of the glow-in-the-dark technique. In the future, new emphases may even incorporate educational markers such as those incorporating street art. During the freezing winter, the pavement may even light up by virtue of large flakes to alarm drivers (until they get covered by snow). These new ventures will possible raise expectations for what one may look forward to in the future particular to highways.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
