Ready for a Glow?

A glow-in-the-dark car that is! In Europe, Nissan is testing a glow-in-the-dark paint on their electric Nissan Leaf. This is what the Victor crew found out:

It’s a coating that absorbs the sun’s rays during the day and will continue to glow 8 to 10 hours after the sun goes down. Although not the first to try this, they believe their paint will last 25 years. The paint itself has a rough feel to it.

Last year, Nissan demonstrated a “self-cleaning” car. It was a special paint that would allow dirt and grease to simply fall off in sheets as it is drives.
