LiTraCon©

LiTraCon© have developed translucent concrete. Neat! Now all we need is transparent aluminum (via small dead animals).

LiTraCon© is a concrete stone-block that turns out to be light conducting through its embedded glassfibers. From one side to the other light passes the stone with- out any significant loss and illumi- nates the darker side of the stone. Shadows are transmitted and shown in precise shapes on the opposite surface.
