Have you seen street lights that use zero energy or electricity?
In The Know Creative found them in Friesland, Netherlands.
Called the “Gates of Light” and designed by Studio Roosegaarde, the structures are 60 restored 1930s floodgates that illuminate the road by reflecting the headlights of passing cars using small prisms.
So how does it work?
The structures are illuminated once headlights from passing cars hit the prisms attached to the outlines of the floodgates.
This futuristic street lighting design can be applied to any structure.
It not only conserves electricity, it is also a creative way of keeping the road safe for motorists at night.
These futuristic street lights only illuminate up when cars drive by — and use zero electricity 💡
