LumiLor Electroluminescent Paint

The era of Tron is coming (at least in paint..), :D 

"The LumiLor electroluminescent coating system is a sprayable EL solution that can cover almost any surface with a light emitting paint." 

Here’s the full vid links for the Tesla and the Motorcycle

All you need is a current and it glows. Not including primer or varnish there’s 4 coats of paint - the conductive coat, the dielectric coat, the luminophore coat and a second conductive coat.

  • The dielectric coating is a electrically-resistant, but polarizable coating that reduces deterioration of the luminophore coating - electrostatic fields are still generated, but current passage is limited.
  • The luminophore coat usually consists of a lattice of Zinc sulphide crystals doped with copper. When a current is applied, electrons become excited and get trapped in higher energy states; other electrons in the lattice replace them creating electron gaps that move through the lattice until they reach a copper atom. The difference in bonding allows a spot for excited electrons to drop back down resulting in the emission of green colored light. The color varies depending on the doping metal.Above: Lattice of copper doped zinc sulphate crystals Source
  • The conductive coats provide the charge difference:

When an alternating voltage is applied, the build-up of a charge on the two surfaces, effectively produces an increasing field (called an electric field) and this causes the phosphors within the field to emit light.. ..no heat is produced in the process. Source

*university voice* unfortunately… we have too much money… so we have to raise tuition so we can build a place to keep all the other money in… so sorry unavoidable

John Conway first theorized that it would be impossible to create a forever-expanding universe using these rules, which was proven wrong by a team at MIT, creating the “glider gun,” which is featured in the third gif. 

Since then, thanks to computers, people all over the world have added new designs to the database, creating amazingly complex designs.

For example Andrew J. Wade created a design which replicates itself every 34 million generations! Furthermore it is also a spaceship (permanently moving pattern) and not only that, it was also the first spaceship that did not travel purely diagonally or horizontally/vertically! These types of spaceships are now appropriately named Knightships.

The simulation has some interesting properties, for example it has a theoretical maximum speed information can travel. Or simply, light speed - as that is the limit in our own universe. The limit is set to 1 cell per generation - after all how can you create something further than 1 cell away in one generation if you can only effect your immediate neighbours? And yet you can get things like the ‘stargate’ (Love the name, huge SG fan here.) which allows a space ship to travel 11 cells in just 6 generations.

Some smart people have even designed calculators, prime number generators and other incredibly complex patterns.
