Solar Freakin’ Roadways!
Can you imagine a road system that lights up, saves money, warns you of debris ahead, melts snow and ice, pays for our electricity and cuts greenhouse gasses by up to 75%? It could be possible with these roadways made of hexagonal weight-sensitive solar panels. You could be riding through the canyons, and a programmed DEBRIS / SLOW warning could light up to let you now there’s a boulder that fell in the road! CAN YOU IMAGINE?! That could then send a message to officials and they could be sent out to… Continue Reading »

In the Pacific Northwest for the last couple weeks you could ride your bike down to meet some friends at a restaurant and it’ll have been sunny and 75° fahrenheit (~23.9° celsius) all day- you’ll walk out an hour and a half later and it’ll be pouring buckets with thunder and lightning!
