We have seen the future of highways, and they probably won't have street lights. That's right light-absorbing, glow-in-the-dark road markings have replaced traditional street lights on a 500-meter stretch of highway in The Netherlands. To accomplish this, the roads are treated with a special foto-luminizing powder that's charged by the sun during the day, which allows the marks to glow for up to 10 hours at night.

Why travel the world by plane, when you've got the skills to build a high-tech camper van? Called the "KiraVan", this giant custom-built all-terrain truck, is capable of traveling almost anywhere in the world, and was created by 61-year-old Californian inventor Bran Ferren for his 4-year-old daughter Kira. It comes complete with a fully stocked office, kitchen, bedroom, and even a popup tent on the roof. According to The Mail, "It will be able to travel up to 2,000 miles without resupply and navigate slopes as steep as 45 degrees thanks to a special suspension system. The cockpit also has a special vibration reducing chair, as well as control for drones that can fly ahead to check traffic."
