The colours can be easily changed – either instantly or by fading – by applying pulses of electricity to the fluid film, which reorients the molecules of the fluid to create other colours. Active True Colour does not require any artificial, projected backlighting. Once the colour is generated, no further power is required to maintain the natural colour.
David Coates, chief technology officer and the creator of Active True Colour, has published more than 80 articles and eight scientific textbook chapters, and is named as an inventor on over 200 patents.
