The Bike that Glows in the Dark

I love bicycles and bicyclists, but I wish they (and I when I am one of them) were easier to see at night.

A Massachusetts company called Halo Coatings has created a retroreflective paint that can be put on just about anything. And one of the first candidates is the bicycle.

Not only is it a great idea, the product will also last for the life of the bike, is UV-stable (which is not true of reflective laminates), and is more environmentally friendly than other retroreflectives (no VOC or heavy metals, for instance).

Give these people a better mousetrap award, please.
