The Phosphorescent Notepad presented in this 'ible is not a new idea
, and commercial versions of this toy do exist
. Many of them are lame and/or overpriced. As usual, the benefit of doing things the SEDIFY way (Somebody Else Does It For You), is that way takes less effort.
Some commercial versions of this product include, the Crayola(r) Glow Station(r), and the Uncle Milton(r) Shadow Magic(r). Some promotional pictures of these culled from the web are attached to this Step. Coincidentally the words "Shadow Magic" are the title of not just one, but two, completely different, trashy romance novels. It's just funny the things that turn up in the search results sometimes.
Also worth mentioning: If there exists, near where you live, an institution calling itself a, "Science Museum", you might have an opportunity to experience a room-sized version of the Phosphorescent Notepad. Science Museums love to paint at least one room with phosphorescent paint. For example, the Exploratorium has such an exhibit.
That's the Exploratorium of San Francisco, in the Former United States.
Anyway, I just wanted you to be aware of some of what's out there,and that's the last I'll mention of SEDIFY in this instructable. So if you think you'd enjoy a little DIY, then please proceed to the next Step.
Images for this Step are just promo images, found on the web.
