Poland unveils glowing bright blue bike lane that’s charged by the sun
Poland has unveiled an amazing solar-powered bike lane that glows in the dark. The bike path located near Lidzbark Warminski in the north of Poland was created by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. zo.o. It is made up of blue luminophores, a synthetic material that emits light up to ten hours at a time once charged by the sun throughout the day.
The concept was inspired by a similar solar-powered bike path in the Netherlands known as the "Starry Night" bike lane. Although the technology is quite different as the Dutch version uses LEDs while the polish version is hugely dependent on solar power.
Check out the bike lane in the video (in Polish) below.
