    repost... But very cool nonetheless
    I hope it becomes commercially available soon.
    I also hope it does not react with my silver/amalgam tooth fillings & make my eyes glow - though that mught be cool...

    From the wiki: "It is a betavoltaic technology, using a radioactive gas, whose "soft" emission of electrons from the beta emitting gas cannot penetrate the glass or polymer wall of the microspheres."

    Great! Paint your bike with this stuff and become Dr. Bruce Banner. I can just see the next run in with a PO'd motorist.

    PO'd Motorist: Get off the $%#!@ road!
    Bicyclist: Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

    This isn't the same stuff they have advertised in the article. These paints require light exposure for 15 minutes before they will glow in the dark. On the other hand... "Litroenergy is a new type of material that emits light for 12 years without needing electricity or sun exposure." and yeah, that is "wicked cool".

    don't hold your breath

    this stuff catches fire, it releases radioactive particles which if inhaled will definitely
    cause cancer. alpha emitters will cause cancer when inhaled, this stuff emits beta

    so don't get your hopes up. cool invention but there are a lot of regulatory hurdles.
    completely harmless product, until it gets in a fire. then it is a toxic zone.

    no one can even ship the stuff, no one can store it. so how can you get some ?

    I wonder if they can make a version that emits heat rather than light? Imagine the applications in the winter-apparel industry!
