  • I have an idea. Is it worth persuing?

    Hi everyone. I'm a new kid on the block and have only just joined a couple of other forums in the last few days, so this type of thing is new to me, so please forgive what may appear my lack of etiquette. I'll pick it up slowly I'm sure.
    Whilst on these other forums I happen to be made aware that not only are children frightened of the dark, but also many adults are also. This has got me thinking. I work for a prototyping company and have done a bit of web research for myself, and I have a feeling that it may be possible to produce something that will glow in the dark without the need for batteries etc. However, I have no wish to look into this any further if you think it is a waste of time. Don't fancy giving up weekends and evenings if it is all pointless. No idea if the material I have found does what it says, or even if I can get it to work, but it may be worth a go. What do we think

    Unless the risk is a life loss (not the case, hehe) all the ideas which "give you the push" (that is - they come from your personality and tend to express it better) should be pursued as far as possible

        I painted stars on the ceiling of my son's bedroom when he was little. Used "glow in the dark" paint. After I'd painstakingly spent hours doing it, someone told me about the stickers you can get.

            I painted stars and planets and space ships on my sons bedroom wall with glow in the dark paint and 7 years later it still glows and even though he is 13 now he still wants to keep it that way.

              Sometimes the fact that it's our work and not only our cash in a gift makes it loved to the most by our beloved

                Lots of companies make glow in the dark paints if you google some can be used outdoors aswell as inside and are water based too so easy to use
                Good luck

                  Am I alone in thinking that there are actually quite a few products out there available on the market that glow in this way? I'm afraid you may have missed the boat on this one.

                  Just don't do a Marie Curie and carry this mysterious substance around with you if it is radioactive.

                    I agree.
                    There are posters already for sale on ebay and there is a firm somewhere ( I think they do franchises) in the uk which can paint a star scene on the celling. Both of them use paint which is white in daylight and glows at night.

                      I havent been on here for AAAGES so im just getting my way through everything!
                      I think perhaps you need to do a bit of research before you go into developing anything.
                      Im afraid of the dark, and im 19!! I sleep with the light on everynight and I love it! I only ever sleep with it off when my boyfriend stays over and even then we have to have some fairy lights on!
                      There are many reasons why people dont like to sleep with the light off and for me, a little tiny glow in the dark thing which produces hardly any light wouldnt do the job for me!
                      Perhaps you coulod develop some solar powered night time device instead, which stores power and comes on when its dark, im sure it would submit more light!
                      Anyway! goodluck!
