Poland Unveils Glow-In-The-Dark Bicycle Path That Is Charged By The Sun


Bicycling has proven to be the most environmental friendly means of commute. It just got better with the new invention by Poland, where the track glows in the dark and is totally environment friendly.

Located in the Lidzbark Warminski in north Poland, the luminous blue cycling strip is a creation by TPA INstytut Badan Technicznych Sp. Z.o.o. Developed using a synthetic material, it gives out light continuously for up to ten hours after sunset, after getting charged all through the day by the natural sunlight available. It was a concept that was created based on the Studio Roosegaarde’s Starry night Bike lane that was installed in Netherlands. In the case of Dutch, they took it one step ahead and solely relied on solar energy for the illumination. Although this track is still under test by the developers, it is a wonderful idea and when put into implementation, the number of cyclist are bound to increase. Also, they have minimized on the usage of electricity by making use of LED lights, which consumes minimal power. We hope that this concept is adapted by several countries from all over the world!
