The world's first glow-in-the-dark cycle path, designed by Daan Roosegaarde was unveiled in the Netherlands earlier this week. The path, made of thousands of twinkling stones, was inspired by Van Gogh's painting "The Starry Night." It runs through the Dutch province of North Brabant, the artist's birthplace.

Roosegaarde, who is famous for his glow-in-the-dark innovations said in a press release, “I wanted to create a place that people will experience in a special way, the technical combined with experience, that’s what techno-poetry means to me.”
