Light activated and other Reactive Surfaces and Materials
This is a placeholder page to discuss various surfaces and materials that interact with light by developing/glowing/etc.
These are displays that use glow in the dark pigment/ink/vinyl/material and UV lights/LED's to create images that fade over time.
This is a pigment/ink that can be screenprinted or embedded in other materials like resin/plastic that can be activated by sunlight or bright UV lights/lasers.
Example projects and products:
- I personally suspect that Blue Seed uses Photochromic pigment like this project that promises an almost colorless view of the pigment when inert and then changes colors when activated by a UV light source.

An exploratory video of someone using photochromic elements in plastics and activating them with UV lasers, UV LED's and sunlight.
These are materials and pigments that change between two color states when a certain amount of heat is applied.
(Examples to come)
These are pigments and other materials that change color when water comes into contact with them but then change back when they eventually dry out.
These are essentially slim materials embedded with small magnetic elements that effectively show magnetic fields when a magnet is placed nearby - they are completely analog.
