Glow-In-The-Dark Lexus, Anyone?


Lexus glow in the dark paint

Okay, we’ll bite.

Back in February, we reported that Nissan Leaf released a totally organic paint coat which not only contains Strontium Aluminate (a biologically solid odorless, nonflammable compound) but it also glows in the dark. This was Nissan’s desire to emphasize the car’s high conversion rate to hail car owners over to solar energy at home.

Now, Lexus is presenting a similar feature with an electro-luminescent paint. The Lexus RC F coupe’s glow-in-the-dark feature corresponds to electric charges that are applied to the vehicle. The level of electric charges is measured by the driver’s pulse rate.

After a heart-rate monitor is installed to a bespoke electrical system and hooked up to the driver or a passenger, the monitor then processes the data and triggers electrical charges in response to the person’s heartbeat and to the car’s exterior panels.

In contrast to Nissan’s glow-in-the-dark paint which is more relative to ecology, Lexus’ similar wow-factor highlights technology. The electroluminescence is a radiative recombination which recognizes phosphorescent components emit photons corresponding to changes in electrical current. Coatings are applied to the car’s body panels with wires connected.

Road trippers looking for major flash factor, this might be the car made for you.
