Ever see that Michael Jackson music video where he is walking down the street and the different flagstones light up as he steps on them? Did you walk away from that thinking how cool it would be to have something like that in your home? The truth is that light-up tiles such as the ones in the Billie Jean music video can be purchased for a number of different scenarios, and while being a little on the pricy side, they can turn your home from drab to modern if you have the cash and the time to put them in.
