Make a bridge out of this so it will make less of a visual impact on the environment. Although this would be great for letting more light into a concrete space. It uses fiber optic threads embedded into the concrete to transmit whatever light is on one side to the other. I would assume you could also do the fibers in a hap-hazard method, to obscure what is within, but allow light. Another method that could be interesting would be to angle the fibers so that they aim more towards the sky on the outside of a structure, and aim down inside, thus capturing more direct light. I don’t know though, seems like a technically difficult method.
I’m also trying to figure out where this would actually get used. You could never paint it, because that would defeat the purpose and flush the money you spent on it down the tubes. I kind of like the idea though of making ‘neccessary’ structures like bridges and barricades and walls a little less obstructive. Still a neat idea though, and I’ll be very surprised the first time I see it somewhere.
