Flash needle

Design Notes: Life is often difficult to find the needle off somewhere, most likely tied to the person or child. If headlong into the body is very dangerous.
Therefore designed this self-luminous large needle eye. Mainly in the surface of the needle attached to a luminescent coating that now have, it can absorb sunlight during the day, the darkness will fluoresce green. In this case, the needle was dropped somewhere more easilyfound in the dark, you can pin it up in time to avoid the tie to the people.
