Give your clothes individuality, equipthe surface of a smartphone or even a car with an unusual pattern will help ink developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. PhotoChromeleon special dyes change color using a special program and exposure to ultraviolet light.

When testing technology, MIT engineersused blue, purple and yellow photochromic dyes, which were mixed and sprayed on the surface of various objects. According to the developers, it is possible to paint with such a solution almost any surface from children's toys to car bodies. After applying the solution, the object is placed in a chamber where, using a projector, it is irradiated with ultraviolet light and changes color according to a given program.

Owners of things can individually createvarious color combinations in a special program designed to activate a spray solution using ultraviolet radiation. The activation and deactivation process is cyclical and can be repeated many times by changing the pattern, pattern or color of the object. It will take 15 to 40 minutes to change the color of the car.

Using technology can reduceproduction of environmentally harmful dyes, reduce the amount of harmful waste. Meanwhile, the consumer will be able to give any of his things an individual look, which can be changed depending on the mood or, for example, the season.

It should be noted that the drawings obtained with PhotoChromeleon paint have high detail and a huge variety of colors.
