Light Writing

No more wasted paper! Write without ever touching the page! Draw on water!

Cutting-edge laser technology developed by the Science Museum.

Draw beautiful, self-erasing patterns of infinite variety on reusable material.

No contact! No friction! No need for erasers! No paper waste!

You can even write from a distance!

Technology


Based on photochromic material that are sensitive to violet light and LED flashlights or small lasers. Comes in blue, red and purple and can cover any surface (flat or three-dimensional).

Electronic circuits controlling the light enable “automatic drawing” and by dissolving the material in liquid one can see flow lines and heat convection.


Ideal for:


Toys, games, light signatures, silhouettes, temporary sunprints, erasable writing & reusable paper.

Scientific exhibits and demonstrations, tracking and recording movement (pendulums, cogwheels).




Demonstrating liquid flow and heat transfer.

Kinetic art and sculpture.




Writing practice, sketching, copying.
