We never cease to be amazed by the incredible inventions we see today. Recently, we came across this story about Polish solar powered bike paths and we just had to share for those that have not yet heard about this. A Polish company called TPA Gesellschaft has invented glow in the dark bike paths. This engineering firm focuses on future tech and this idea, installed in a city called Pruszkow and soon to be installed in Warsaw bike paths, is truly fantastic.
The path uses a chemical called Luminophores. The chemical ingests sunlight throughout the day and then emits light for up to 10 hours, keeping bike paths nicely lit for those using paths at night. The possibilities if this truly works are so exciting, specially since it wouldn't require any extra power supply, meaning it be completely solar powered. We absolutely love innovative ideas and this is one us park goers just had to share.
