why just orange or white?
also roads: why not different colour roads?
let's think outside the box, here.
the red bit of the city with all the seediness.
I think maybe I just wish the world looked more like computer games.
not sure about that at all.
our street lamps are well boring. I bet the bureaucrats are holding back all kinds of radical designs because they might angry up the blood of the British public.
like, boring roads lower expectations. the more miles you travel within the grid, the more you accept the drudgery of modern life.
I'm definitely onto something, here.
misleading headlines :(
Rather than having one bulb, there's about a dozen LEDs. Doesn't do a lot in terms of LIGHTING the street (neither do the sodium ones, mind you), but it looks quite nice and wintry in the fog and so on.
they make me feel even colder.
Sodium lamps offer the best compromise between cost, longevity and illuminance at the wavelength that they operate.
It also helps to have all lights the same as then people like astronomers can filter them out more easily.
when you could fit green filters on street lamps and dress up in cool space fighter outfits with guns that make laser sounds and battle genetically modified super spiders?
