Ok, this stuff is amazing, I have never seen this before in my life and it’s just nuts. This is pretty much concrete that light can get through. It’s just as hard but has a more pleasing appearance. Check it out!

Three years ago, Hungarian architect ron Losonczi invented LiTraCon, the first light transmitting concrete.

A wall made of LitraCon has the strength of traditional concrete but thanks to an embedded array of optical glass fibers, view of the outside world, such as the silhouette of trees, houses and passersby, are transmitted inside the building.

The wall can be quite thick as the fibers work without any loss in light up to 20 m.

The way this is done is to ise a frame which holds thousands of rows of monofiiment pulled tightly, and then to have fine-grained, very wet concret poured into the mould, Once hard, a saw cuts the ends offf the concrete and the filiment pieces act like fiber optic cables, passing light thru in small strands. Just thought you'd like to know.
