Glowing Bicycle Paths are pretty dang cool

From the Netherlands, where a significant population bikes home at night, design Daan Roosegaarde’s created a glow in the dark bicycle path:

Nuenen is the hometown of Van Gogh, and the city commissioned this bicycle path as a tribute to the artist, and the design of the path echos the swirls and brushstrokes of The Starry Night. Unlike the equally-cool project that they’re doing involving painting highways with ultra-high intensity glow in the dark paint, the bicycle path uses small LEDs which get their power from nearby solar arrays. A beautiful intersection of lighting technology, art, and public works.
