Members of the IBR Algorithm Group and Braunschweig University of Technology mounted LED lights on a batch of Roomba floor-cleaning robots and let them go to town in an empty room, taking long-exposure camera shots of the guys in action. The resulting light show is pretty cool, wouldn't you say?

Congrats to Mas Sumbramanian and his team out at Oregon State University for the discovery! He said the following in an official OSU press release:

"It was serendipity, actually; a happy, accidental discovery.

The basic crystal structure we’re using for these pigments was known before, but no one had ever considered using it for any commercial purpose, including pigments.

Ever since the early Egyptians developed some of the first blue pigments, the pigment industry has been struggling to address problems with safety, toxicity and durability."
