LumiLor LED Paint Is The Coolest Thing We’ve Seen In A While

LumiLor

Imagine for a second a special kind of paint, one that you can spray anywhere like, you know, regular paint. Except this particular one lights up on command! Yes, LumiLor paint from Darkside Scientific is pretty much a liquid spray-on LED. Seriously. Any surface sprayed with this stuff, and connected properly, can be lit instantly, in colours of your choosing!

The patented LumiLor™ Electroluminescent Coating System system is a practical and durable electroluminescent coating technology that goes on like paint, but will illuminate when energized with an electrical current.

LumiLor™ has been successfully applied to metals (primed first to insulate them electrically), numerous types of thermoplastic, wood, glass and even carbon fiber. LumiLor has been applied to compound curves and complex shapes of many sizes and is flexible to nearly a full 180 degree bend.

Envision the applications, from custom paint jobs on vehicles or homes, to improved safety on runways. Tron even comes to mind!

The thing is, you can’t apply this at home, really. It requires a specialized environment and expensive equipment. But the product is currently being bought by an increasing number of car-customization outlets, which do offer this among their various capabilities, although we don’t know the price range. And Darkside Scientific is currently looking to partner up with OEM manufacturers, in order to offer this as an option in future vehicles.

We seriously wish them the best of luck with that, it would be awesome to see this get big!

KFC Keyboard: Hungrier By the Letter

KFC Keyboard

A keyboard made by KFC that’s covered with tiny(but still yummy-looking) pieces of chicken and drumstick-shaped flash drives? Where else can you expect to find gadgets like these but Japan? Of course, it’s not complete without a mouse…so KFC Japan threw in a drumstick mouse into the mix, too!

Granted, the only letters you’ll find on the keyboard are K, F, and C. You’ll have a lot of guesswork to do with the other letters if you’re not used to typing without glancing down at the letters on your keyboard anymore.

In Light Of The iPhone 6 Announcement…

huge

Which one of you does this hold true for? I’m so ensconced in Apple’s ecosystem, I have trouble considering the hardware superiority of other handsets and dismiss it offhand. Yes, I’ll be getting an iPhone 6 Plus, and may consider selling a limb to do so…

I am a sad, sad individual.

FOBO Tire Monitors Tire Pressure, Connects To Your Phone

FOBO-tire

Most people don’t worry too much about tire pressure. They set it once after changing a tire, say, and then forget it. Oh sure, it’s not smart since you can get lower mileage and potentially get into an accident. But there you have it. Some of us, however, are a little more careful and a gadget like the FOBO Tire could relieve their low-tire-pressure anxieties. Using four somewhat goofy-looking tire sensors that screw onto the valve and connect to your phone via Bluetooth, you can know each tire’s status within 0.1psi. They monitor even when you’re not driving, so that you can be alerted in the middle of the night if you get a sudden pressure loss. They don’t need an external power source and instead rely on batteries which should last up to 2 years. You can even share your tire status with your friends, because you know, that’s really what they care about.

It’s $90.
