ON/OFF - The Miracle Paint

I've heard of glow in the dark paint. I've heard of chalkboard paint.  I've heard of whiteboard paint.  I've even heard of magnetic paint.  But never have I ever heard of a paint that is as absolutely amazing as this. French designers Agence Quarks and Nicolas Triboulot have come up with a paint...for your walls...that (get this) has the ability to turn your lights on and off when you touch it!  NO way!

This touch sensitive paint is called ON/OFF (how fitting), and it can be painted on nearly any surface.  You can either apply it with a roller or a paint brush, and it can be used to control a wide variety of electronics.  Once it is applied to the wall, you can paint over it using traditional paint in the color of your choice, and you can even wallpaper over it.  I haven't been able to find out how it exactly works, but I do know that this paint can even incorporate dimmer features for lighting.

Just think of how utterly amazing that is.  No more stumbling around in the dark trying to find the light switch - no more having to crawl out of bed when you're already practically asleep to turn off the light - now all you have to do is hit the wall and the task is done.
