I ride at night all the time, and frankly I think this is a solution looking for a problem. It's also mentioned in the comments, but I would guess the light contrast could really screw with your night vision, and resolution of the grid would make you miss smaller but equally dangerous obstacles. Would still love to try it out to see firsthand, though.
 
Clever grid projection for night-time cycling.

Yikes!
 
Permanent Identifiers for the Web, Project Launches

http://manu.sporny.org/2013/perma-id/

Web applications that deal with data on the web often need to specify and use URLs that are very stable. They utilize services such as purl.org to ensure that applications using their URLs will always be re-directed to a working website. These “permanent URL” redirection services operate kind of like a switchboard, connecting requests for information with the true location of the information on the Web. These switchboards can be reconfigured to point to a new location if the old location stops working.

How Does it Work?

If the concept sounds a bit vague... read more here:

The place is a bit hard to find; it's in the strip mall building to the east of Brooks BBQ and the Shell station. The atmosphere is kind of like a deli, but they do have some semi-private tables with recessed floor under the table (a japanese style, I think). Anyway, as other reviewers have mentioned service is extremely slow. I went with a friend and it took some time to get orders in and drinks, and the order itself took about an hour. Since we were hungry when we arrived, we had to order another round of sushi, and the timing was somewhat better, but still about 30 minutes. The food itself seemed very good, but honestly, I was so hungry by the time I actually saw some food that I'm not to confident in the nuance of my palate. tl;dr: ~2.5 hours of hungry waiting punctuated by brief moments of good sushi. **update:** Returned there on a slow weeknight and the service was fine & friendly.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Tim spent a long time with me giving me an intro to backpacks, and generally orienting me. They were out of stock on a few items I was interested in, but were very accommodating (offering to put in an order for me, and eventually even selling me a display model of a sleeping pad at a nice discount). The best part is that they were in fact very close (ie within s/h charges) if not matching online prices on some items I was looking for. I try to support a local business when I can, and when they do that well with prices, and offer the extra customer service, its an easy choice!
