London, April 28 IANS | 6 months ago

You need not see red if you find your remote control broken just before the start of a match as you can now fix it just by painting it with a brush. All you need to do after that is wait for it to get dried up!


A London-based company now offers paint that becomes conductive once it dries.

The black paint uses carbon to conduct electricity when it dries.

The electric paint, developed by the firm Bare Conductive, can be applied to paper, wood, cement and textiles, among other materials, and becomes conductive once it dries.

The liquid has been used for a variety of applications since the founders of the company came up with the idea while working on a final-year project at the Royal College of Art in Britain.

"The best thing about the material and our approach is that it provides for engagement of multiple kinds of intelligence," Matt Johnson, one of the founders of the company, was quoted as saying.

It can be used fix broken electronics, such as remote controls, while hobbyists use it to create things such as drumkits which can sense hand movements without being touched.

The product has not been without criticism from those who question why the paint has no exact end use, the Guardian reported.
