Electric paint that lights up!

Electric paint! The future of light is here, and it's in the paint! Thanks to electroluminescent paint, we can now make your paint job light up on command. We connect wires from a battery source right to the paint itself. The paint is actually a complex system of about 6 different coatings that all work together to produce light when energized by power. When you flip the switch (or press the button, or power it from your smartphone), the light from your paint job turns on. It's really that easy! Take a look at how 'electric paint' looks in different shades of light on the TD Customs Motorcycle below. Electric paint is still so new L...
