Having grown tired of the oppressive atmosphere concrete can give to a structure, 27 year-old Aron Losonczi has invented a type of concrete that allows light to pass through. By combining fiberoptic material with standard concrete, the newly-dubbed 'LitraCon' will allow silhouettes of outdoor shapes to pass through to the inside of rooms. Losonczi hopes this will give buildings a "lighter" feeling. The material has all the load-bearing strength of regular concrete and should become available via Losonczi's company later this year.
