In May, we wrote about the world’s first glow-in-the-dark road by Daan Roosegaarde, of Studio Roosegaarde. And guess what, he’s back at it again. This time, with a twinkling, bicycle path that’s inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting, The Starry Night.

Like his other Smart Highway, the bicycle path consists of thousands of twinkling stones that charge during the day, powering it enough to glow at night for eight hours.

It was constructed to celebrate the start of the Van Gogh 2015 international theme year, and runs through van Gogh’s birthplace. It’s one-of-a-kind and opened in Eindhoven this past November.
