A new glow-in-the-dark bike lane gets charged by the sun

The Polish town of Lidzbark Warminski has a unique new way of constructing bike lanes: It makes them glow in the dark. The town's first luminous lane was completed September 28. It's made of a material that uses phosphors, the same synthetic material you find in glow-sticks and other glow-in-the-dark products. Phosphors are energized by certain kinds of radiation (including sunlight), and store that energy to be re-emitted as visual light over a longer period of time.
