+ - SPAM: Light-up rug saves toes everywhere

coondoggie writes "How many times have you smashed your foot into something as you traipse to the bathroom in the middle of the night? Well no more thanks to a new rug system that uses sensors and electroluminescence to light up as you step on it. Footlume was created by two college students who were inspired by the number of times they used their mobile phones to light their way in the dark. By using the same light source, electroluminescent panel and transferring it into a pressure activated rug we have created an energy efficient alternative to turning on a light switch. The electroluminescent rug uses rechargeable batteries uses on an electric field to generate light. [spam URL stripped]"
