The Netherlands’ Futuristic Highway Glows In The Dark

Some features from the world’s most technologically-advanced highway, set to open in The Netherlands mid-2013:

  • Glow-in-the-dark road markings painted with photo-luminescent paint which are charged during the day and light up during the night.
  • Temperature-responsive paint which indicates slippery roads when temperatures fall below zero.
  • Interactive lights along the highway that light up as cars approach.
  • Wind lights that light up using the draft produced by cars and priority induction lanes that can recharge electric cars as they run along them also feature.
  • Self-filling pot holes.

Okay, I made that last one up, but after watching the simulation and reading the specs, you totally would have believed it. It’s that freakin’ cool.
