Darkness is the unknown. In the dark we see nothing, find nothing, know nothing. In darkness the naive Roderigo of Othello was fatally wounded, and in darkness mysteries lie such as the ghost of Hamlet. In fear of darkness, humans have found ways to defeat it from the discovery of fire, to the that of the wax candle, and finally the use of electricity. To this day, we have continually sought to combat darkness whether it be physical darkness or the lack of knowledge itself. Proteq, a company based in the United Kingdoms, have found yet another solution to this constant need.
Known as Starpath, this waterproof photoluminescent coating absorbs light energy during the day and uses that energy to exude an ethereal glow during the night. As a result, Starpath helps illuminate the areas in which it is used on. This material can be applied to pathways and roads through easy spraying methods. Furthermore, the material is non-reflective and contains anti-slip properties. Such innovation is very beneficial for society. Using Starpath would help save money and energy for cities because Starpath would potentially allow for the discontinuation of the need to use street lamps since Starpath would provide enough light for pedestrians and vehicles alike at night. Starpath will also help reduce the number of vehicular accidents with its aforementioned properties by allowing vehicles greater traction of the surfaces where Starpath is applied.
