Lighting Up Your Motorcycle Paint Job At The Flick Of A Switch

A company named Darkside Scientific announces the creation of a product that they state will transform the way we use and see paint. It’s called LumiLor and is a patent-pending practical, durable and affordable electroluminescent coating technology that can be illuminated with a simple electrical current. A motorcycle that lights up at night at the switch of a button? Every day is seems like reality creeps ever closer to science-fiction. Darkside Scientific claims it can be custom-animated to flash in sequenced, strobed, and sound activated modes and says it can be applied to metal, wood, fiberglass and plastics. LumiLor is claimed to be energy efficient, powered by a touch of electrical current, and is safe and cool to the touch. A new medium for artists to explore?

    Very cool! I see people painting on turn signals and all kinds of cool graphics to
    customize their bikes.

    I wonder how much juice is needed to power up. This would be a good thing to have on a helmet.

    My first thought jumped to using this stuff + controllers to turn a car into a tv similar to that canopy setup on Fremont St. in Las Vegas.

    Though the idea of imbedding my running lights/signals into the paint scheme does tickle the imagination.

    Neato. Twenty years ago a friend of mine had this idea but never did anything with it. Slow thinker that I am could not see the coolness then. peace

    I worked for a company back in late 1990’s that used an electroluminescent silk screening process that was made to be used as backlighting on the old motorrola pagers, timex “indiglo” watches and the first Garmin handhelds. Automotive use on the dashboards of Chrysler cars instead of bulbs. It is also used today on those flat night lights you plug in the wall at night.
    It would light up using nothing more than a watch battery for power.The company was called Durel Corporation, but I think 3m bought them out.
    I would not be surprised if someone from that old company is involved in this new product.
