Colored Bubbles [Nov. 18th, 2005|09:34 am]
One of the most exciting new toys --and chemical breakthroughs-- that I've heard about in a long time:

Colored Bubbles!

PopSci article via Slashdot. The new bubbles are supposed to come out in a few months under the name "Zubbles".

Popular Science

Same article I think was in this month's issue of PS. Cool stuff!
i think the inventor was quoted as saying that the inital mix went wrong and the acidity of the bubbles ate through peoples clothes. :)

Re: Popular Science

Yes, this is the online version of the PopSci article.

Some of the early failures do sound interesting in their own right, though less suited for toys.

This guy's gonna make a mint on the zubbles! It's not only brilliant how he got the bubble to absorb all the light except for the color of which the bubble is supposed to be, but also on knowing how people like to celebrate with colorful things. Afterall zubbles are safer to disperse at a celebration than fireworks.

I wonder if the Zubbles have been tested on fur. :)

Cool pic! thanks for the link. (I feel sorry for turf-cutout-man standing off to the right; that one has to make soccer challenging!)
