Nate from The King of Random shows us how to make a soupy, goopy concoction using Borax detergent and Elmer’s clear glue that can glow brilliantly in the dark when combined with the stuff from inside of glow sticks. If you’re gonna try this, wear gloves and eye protection!
Glow In The Dark
Vollebak’s Black Light is a collection of athletic wear that appears all black in daylight. But you’ll still be seen in them in the dark, because they have black glass spheres that easily reflect light. There’s a t-shirt, long sleeved shirt, sweater and jacket.
NEWwooDESIGN creates these unique tables by engraving detailed maps of cities into oak wood. Each table has three layers representing streets, buildings, and water, and is coated with a resin that glows in the dark. Choose from several European cities, as well as NYC.
Vollebak’s waterproof jacket glows in the dark for up to 12h with as little as 2h of exposure to sunlight and other sources of light. Unlike most treatments, the jacket’s glow-in-the-dark compound won’t wear off. It’s also stretchable, packable and weighs just over 8oz.
Artist Peter Draws creates a wonderful line art illustration using “invisible” ink under a black light. Watching the ink flow off of his glass pen tip into the water is just as mesmerizing as onto the canvas itself. His charming and soothing narration definitely reminds us of Bob Ross.
The Science Channel’s series Street Science presents a neat experiment, mixing bulk quantities of the nasty goo inside of glowsticks to produce a variety of vibrant colors. The result is a new abstract painting medium. Needless to say, don’t play with these chemicals at home.
Innovo Design creates jewelry and other accessories packing tiny vials of radioactive tritium gas, which makes them glow in low light or darkness without need to be “charged” in daylight. They offer rings, pendants, USB drives, bottle openers, and even a tritium “flashlight.”
