Hands on Door Handles — Design Competition

I get up at night to go to the bathroom. It is pitch dark and I finger my way forward. I do not turn on the lights because my wife is a light-sleeper and they will disturb her. My wrist-watch is glowing and I can read the hour. If only the door handle could glow like that! I check the kids and see the funny plastic badges they got from their grandmother glowing beside their pillows. So it is easy and even cheap!
Can you find your door handle in the dark?
Glow Stripe has a clean and minimalistic design – an extruded rectangular section bends smoothly to attach to the door. The attachment is exposed and articulated. A thin stripe passes through the centre of the handle. The stripe is made of plastic which glows with a pale-green colour in the dark.
