Hehe, Neat ... Would certainly stop a few of us falling dwon the stairs in our morning slumber. I guess it would be a pain to install in a regular english suburb house tho :p

Stuff like this is actually pretty easy to do, with regard to the electronics portion. If you're building a new house or doing some fairly significant renovations, then you can do this kind of stuff with a fairly minor increase to the total cost. Now if you want to retrofit an existing house or apartment with these sorts of features, that is a major PIA! It's like adding structured ethernet to an old house... you can do it, but it's very time consuming, and it never turns out exactly like you want it.

Yes, it's only reasonable to install on a new house (ie: still under construction)... installing it on existing house would be pain in the arse and probably would not justify the cost on either case.

Very good, they can prove essential in emergency situations when the evacuation of a building will require the occupants to use the staircases.

I could use a couple of these. I fall on the stairs every time I try to go up them at night, they're in a super dark hallway with no light.

I don't see why you would need one for every step however.

Why they are led's I bet you could do it off of some batteries instead of running wire. The batteries would still last longer than an incondecent

Only problem with that is the triggering mechanism.
