The Glow Board
The Glow Board is a mix of aesthetic and function. The goal was to create a longboard deck that allows the user to safely board at night without worrying about cars or other pedestrians. The EL wire successfully adds this level of security, while also lending to a significant aesthetic improvement. Lastly, the deck also sports a glow-in-the-dark laser etching on the bottom to further its appeal add to the theme of artistic glow.
