color changing concrete

May 23, 2008

Mnnn concrete is one of my favorite materials. Yes grey, yes some might say bouring but if used properly it can be wonderful. So a while back I read about concrete which allows some light to pass through it which sounded quite interesting… but this is here is something else. It seems some clever folks have come up with a color changing concrete. The concrete is heated? and voila it changes from its usual grey color to white. Here I am not sure if it then has to remain heated to keep the color and there are other colors but still quite cool. Check out the demos on the chromastone website (unfortunately this is not yet available as a commercial product)
