With Halloween just a couple of days away, I wish I had come across these a little earlier. But should a rave be in your future, you still might want to pick up a pair of these glow-in-the-dark eyeglasses from Zenni Optical.
Other than tradition, there’s really no reason that jewelry has to be made from precious metals and gemstones. Personally, I’d rather wear one of these slick glow-in-the-dark rings, fabricated from carbon fiber.
Israel-based Composite Corporation handmakes these rings using carbon fiber and composite materials, along with epoxy resin, and a special phosphorescent powder.
Youtuber KyleofAsgard recently built himself a replica of Thor’s helmet. So what makes this one so special? This unique design makes your eyes glow and look like the CGI effect from the movies. Only I’m sure it costs a lot less than paying a team of VFX artists.
Cool LEGO builds are one thing, but when they glow in the dark and look otherworldly, that’s taking it to a whole other level. Take Beyond the Brick’s video tour of the all the glow-in-the-dark builds on display in the black light ‘LEGO Glow Zone’ at Philly Brick Fest 2017 and prepare to be impressed.
No, you’re not dreaming. The pavement is actually twinkling like the stars in the sky, and it’s all thanks to Starpath. It’s a spray-on paint that transforms regular pathways into glow-in-the-dark ones.
I’ve seen some offbeat projects turn up on Kickstarter over the years, but a project that’s there now called Glowing Plants is one of the strangest. You can probably figure out what the project is about simply from the name.
If you are into tattoos, you’ve probably seen some really awesome Star Wars designs, but have you ever seen one that has a UV glowing lightsaber? I didn’t think so. Well, as usual, the internet makes all of your dreams come true.
I can’t think of many worse places to be stuck than in the smoke-filled interior of a building on fire. Between the prospects of suffocating from smoke inhalation, and burning to death, it’s not a pretty thought.
First off, no that isn’t some sort of deformed penis with the world’s tiniest testicles in the photo below. Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s a bald mouse that a team of researchers from Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo are using as a test rodent for a cool new sensor that may someday help make monitoring blood sugar less painful for diabetics.
The Tron Legacy buzz is slowly starting, and Threadless has jumped onto the bandwagon with some great Tron-inspired hoodies that glow in the dark.
This great hoody was designed by Rolf Nelson. He’s come up with a few different designs, including t-shirts, that will really make you pop in the night since they all glow in the dark.
On the surface, this TRON-inspired NES mod doesn’t look like much. But when the lights go down, it’s like a Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner invited your console to a party.
Once fully charged with black light, Thretris‘ modded NES really comes to life, glowing with a brightness that could only be bested if it were electroluminescent.
As we look for more ways to generate energy-efficient light, we’ve seen a gradual move away from the warm glow of incandescent light, to the ugly pinkish hues of CFL, to the strange blueish-white point-source light produced by LEDs.
There are certainly a ton of different ways to tell time, but this retro-modern digital clock is definitely one of the cooler designs I’ve seen in a while.
The Ice Tube clock ($70 USD) gets its brilliant blue display thanks to an old-school Russian-issued VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) tube.
