A new glow-in-the-dark bicycle path in Poland, is charged by the Sun.

Lidzbark Warminski in the north of Poland, unveiled a luminous blue cycling path, created by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp.

The glow-in-the-dark path made from a synthetic material, is illuminated ten hours, when charged by the sun during the day.

The concept was inspired by Studio Roosegaarde in the Netherlands, that is using LEDs. This system is dependent upon solar power.

An airliner means a device used to carry passengers on a commercial basis. They are most often operated by airlines that own or lease. They serve the regular lines or are chartered to transport groups starting to commercial airports.

The vast majority of online service aircraft are designed exclusively for these types of uses, but in the first half of the twentieth century they were often developed from military aircraft bomber-type or transportation. Many are also available in freighter to transport cargo or passengers-cargo combined version. Old appliances sold on the used market are often converted for freight transport. Some devices have been built for the transportation of persons (heads of state) are used as a business aircraft or know military applications (troop transport, refueling, etc.).

Watch An Insane 20,000 Watt Lightbulb Test!

Watch An Insane 20,000 Watt Lightbulb Test!

Most of the lightbulbs in your home are probably equivalent to 60 to 100 watts. Above, “electrical overload” fan Photonicinduction fires up a 20,000 watt halogen bulb in a small lab space.

The 20,000-watt halogen bulb is typically used on large film sets, is almost 2 feet long, and uses garage door springs as filaments.

After giving the bulb a test run, Photonicinduction turns off the autoexposure on the camera to allow the viewers to experience the full brightness of bulb.
