I can’t decide if this is awesome or just a fad like the chameleon paint that was all the rage in the early 2000’s. Paint that changes color based on the temperature? Could be cool, could also get old in a hurry, much like the aforementioned chameleon paint schemes.
How does it work? Well they don’t go into detail in the video but I believe they are utilizing thermochromic ink in the paint. Without going all power nerd on you, Thermochromic ink utilizes thermochromism, aka it changes color based on temperature. Or to put it in simpler terms, the exact same technology that brought you the mood ring. ood rings were huge in the 80’s. They changed color based on your “mood” essentially working off the concept that if you’re angry you’ll run a little hotter.
Personally I like things the simple way. I like my cars to look simple. That means normal paint job. Not saying this isn’t cool, it just isn’t for me. I see myself getting bored with this, also I don’t foresee this aging well.
