...glowing strip lights that recharge fully in the sunlight and glow for between 3 and 12 hours after dark without ever needing batteries or electricity.
...it's completely child and pet-safe, non-toxic, weather- and UV-resistant and anti-microbial. The luminescent lighting strips activate within 5 minutes of exposure to sunlight or ambient light, and achieve maximum brightness after 30 minutes. They'll then glow brightly for 3-4 hours, dimming slowly until they are imperceptible after about 12 hours.
Several diameters are available, from 5/16" down to a tiny 1/8" diameter that is machine-washable and suitable for use in clothing and footwear. Custom sizing will be available and the tubes can be cut to length using normal scissors. They will initially be available in bright blue and blue/green.
Possibilities are endless. Reminds me of ELwire, but less bright, and without the need for batteries.
Can't wait to try some out!
