Currency that glows could happen someday…(2 Photos)

Designers Jaesik Heo, Hojoon Lim and Dahaeng Lim are trying to invent the future of paper currency: bills that glow. The actual method that makes the bills glow softly isn’t disclosed, but it’s clear from the pictures that this concept would make your wallet into a rave every single night. No more trouble making out which bills to tip your bartender in a dark club.

    It’s Korean Won, nothing new, take it into any club with a blacklight and it does that … I’ve been living here in Korea on and off since 1999 …

      I was there in 99, Uijeongbu. I don’t remember the money glowing, of course I could have been too drunk to notice I will admit. The twelve months I was there we did a lot of drinking. That was a hard habit to break.

      What's the point in glowing under a black light? If you have access to a black light, you might as well just use a regular light.

    Now why would anybody wan’t money that glows? that makes no sense.

    Could be tritium laced into the currency.
