The 80's are back with a vengeance and surely neon fashion can't be far behind. And just in time, scientists have developed full-color glow-in-the-dark fabrics, sure to be all the rage in the fashion world!

Implications - The way the fabrics work is by using phosphorescent materials that absorb energy through light. The materials are able to reuse the light's energy over and over again for long periods of time. The idea is still a work in progress but the scientist Saito and his lab partners Naoki Adachi and Hiroyasu Kondo are discovering new things every day. The glow-in-the-dark fabrics would make for some awesome clothing that would look really cool at a rave party!
