Accidents Happen! Here's Something Smart And Kind Of Sexy To Prevent Them

Do you know how many of us old folks have bad knees, bad hips, bad vision, and terrible problems with balance?  A lot of us, and though I admit I don't know the exact numbers on these old-age infirmities, I can tell you that this S2 Liner designed by Cheol Min Park is what we need to protect us at home.

It's simple.  A glow in the dark tape liner that, when placed strategically, can light up the objects we would normally bump into, trip over, or fall off of... the S2 Liner.

It's easy to apply to the edges of furniture, corners, and stairs, as well as light switches, bathroom doors, and plenty of other places where light is needed.  Think of how much you will save on electricity!

This tape relies on 'light compression technology,' which manages to pass light through the smallest of nanometers, giving us (i.e., optics geeks) the ability to light up nano-nanometers in the smallest of spaces. Look, during the day, you don't even notice it.
