Glow-in-the-dark cars?

Forget brake lights, now there's illuminating paint for night driving.

The first logical step for the application of glow-in-the-dark paint would be to layer it on a pathway in a dark forest. It make sense to illuminate a pathway at night, as inventor Hamish Scott in the U.K. did with his Starpath paint. But does it make the same amount of sense to start coating vehicles in glowing paint? Heck yes! Scott is now working with big-name auto brands like Nissan to make some of its cars night-friendly.

And he’s gone even further, painting things like bikes and helmets (which makes even more sense considering the number of accidents that occur as a result of night blindness). More items on his glow list: eye-glasses and cell phone covers (never lose a phone in the cinema again!).
