Netherlands uses glow-in-the-dark tech to replace street lamps (VIDEO)

By Nic_low on 17 Apr 2014

A scene more commonly seen in science fiction shows is becoming reality in Netherlands. The country plans to use glow-in-the-dark paint to replace street lamps for illumination at night. And that's not all.
Temperature sensitive motifs may be painted on the road to warn drivers of extreme weather, such as snow, which can hinder driveability. Other energy-saving technologies, such as street lamps that only light up when a car passes by, may also make their way onto public roads. Jump to the video to watch how these innovative ideas work.

Isn't that deer country?


Unless they're genetically engineering their deer to glow in the dark, I don't see how this obviates the need for proper street lighting.
