8Bar Bike lights up the night

start-up-idea-glow-bikeA German company has created a bicycle that glows in the dark.


The frame and rims are coated with a photoluminescent paint that absorbs light during the day and emits it in the dark – just like the hands of a watch.


The 8Bar Bike needs to be stored in a well-lit area and the glowing effect diminishes over time. It is also a fixed-gear model, perfect for hipsters and trendier suburbs.


Why not design something similar for the Australian market?


If a hipster-friendly bike doesn’t sound like your forte, perhaps you could create a glow-in-the-dark mountain bike for outdoorsy types.
