Nissan Glow-in-the-Dark LEAF
The entire auto industry is probably thinking, “What will those crazy Nissan kids come up with next?” You certainly are well aware of the self-cleaning car that gained so much buzz last year, and might have heard about Nissan’s bold foray into self-driing car technology as well. Perhaps not surprisingly, many of the most noteworthy technological leaps have been made in relation to the all-electric Nissan LEAF, a vehicle that certainly needs no introduction. Now, it’s blowing our minds once again: get a load of the Nissan glow-in-the-dark LEAF. While we don’t expect to see this at Robbins Nissan anytime soon, it still is worthy of our attention. Here’s how it works. The paint of the LEAF is covered with an organic, high-tech coating called Starpath, which absorbs energy from sunlight during the day, and then is illuminated for up to 10 hours afterward. According to producers, this coating is expected to last about eight years, and it looks awesome. So what do we love about it? Here are four things we love about the glow-in-the-dark-leaf:
- It looks like something out of the moie Tron, and although the sequel was awful, the original was amazing.
- Can you imagine anyone trying to break into a car that is glowing? Consider this your theft deterrent.
- This has to make a car safer, right? You would be so much more isible, and isibility equals safety.
- If alivens ever attack Houston, we’re pretty sure that this vehicle will be among the only ones that are left untouched. You know, because you’ll look like one of them.
