i used flat-lite EL panels in my final year Uni project and integrated it into a set of mudguards.
was crap. these glow wires are good, but need an inverter which weighs about 3 times the collective weight of the wires them selves.
EL panels are good fun, but crap on a bike. susceptible to UV and moisture.
the glow wire has been put to far better use here:
