Get ready to be excited about cement, runners and cyclists. Glow-in-the-dark sidewalks, bike lanes and roads may be a thing!
A scientist in Mexico announced earlier this month that he had developed solar-powered, glow-in-the-dark cement that could be used to illuminate roads, bike lanes and walking paths, according to the news site Investigación y Desarrollo.
The cement absorbs energy from the sun during the day and converts that energy into light at night. After a full day under the sun, the material can shine for up to 12 hours.
Early morning runs? No problem. Late night rides? You bet! Let’s hope this invention becomes a reality soon.
