Glowing highways from Netherlands

Glowing road (Studio Roosegarde)In a small town about 60 miles southwest of Amsterdam lies a stretch of road with no streetlights. Instead, along some 15,000 feet of Highway N329, cars follow stripes of glowing green paint that illuminate the edges of the road like an airfield landing strip at night. Designer Daan Roosegaarde calls it the highway of the future. For the past several years, Roosegaarde and his team of Dutch designers have been working on making these glowing lines a reality. This road in the Netherlands is the pilot project for Roosegaarde’s ambitious vision of replacing passive infrastructure with smart roads that communicate with drivers. He has big ideas—things like roadways that charge electric cars and color-changing paints that alert drivers to icy conditions. As cars get smarter, he argues, so too should the infrastructure that supports them.
