A Paved Paradise?

It's hard to know what the future holds, but it's exciting to see new innovative ideas - like Solar Roadways.

This couple have developed a prototype for solar roads. If expanded, it could be a future road surface of toughened glass with solar panels underneath. A series of LED lights provides changeable road markings.

There's more info in their video and more images of what it would look like on their fundraising page.



Now that's what I call a 'road of the 21st century'.
