[EMS Discuss] Red Bull Creation Ideas

Mon Apr 8 16:52:39 PDT 2013

What about a long walkway in a dark area lit up with many lights all in a
row.  I'm imagining lights all illuminating the path from above.  The catch
is, as soon as you step into the path it goes dark and it only lights up
behind you as you move forward instead of in front of you.  Mocking you.
