Here's an interesting concept, and one which would make bicycle use much, much safer.
The Kilo GLOW bicycle can light up in the darkness, without using sophisticated, expensive LED systems. Instead the bike relies on paint alone to create the effect.
PureFix have came up with the idea, coating the entire bike's frame in a glow-in-the-dark paint. An hour's sun absorption into the paint will allow for one hour of glowing in the dark. You can therefore cycle to work in the morning, soak up some rays, and then cycle home at night illuminated by the glowing frame.
The light alone will not allow you to see far enough in front to rely solely on it, but will emit enough light to heighten your visiblity with other road users. The bike is available in numerous sizes and are completely customisable.
So, if you're looking for a safe, inexpensive way to improve your cycling experience, look no further than a simple coating of glow-in-the-dark paint.
