Peel-off wallpaper layers

Racing drivers who wear full-face helmets often use tear-off visor films; when one layer is plastered with bugs, you peel it off to expose a new, clean layer.

Now, thanks to those awfully clever people at MaxCo., the technology of Formula 1 racing can be brought right into your living room. MaxCo's PeelPaper is a wallpaper consisting of a backing sheet and several thin layers of plastic, each printed with a different design. PeelPaper is affixed to the walls just like regular wallpaper but, when it begins to look grubby or you're just bored with your decor, use a scalpel to lift up one corner of the topmost plastic layer, and peel away. Gadulka! In a few moment, your room is redecorated.

       How about having each layer on a clear sheet with ink that will turn clear once you shine a particular wavelength of light at it?   

       Perhaps because there's no such ink?   

       How about if you do this but in such a way that it's more clever?   

       It's my Friday, I'm un-motivated.

       What you also need as a side by side product is a kind of blasting attachment which will pepper the walls with insects. For authenticity.

       When I was a student I created "skin disease" wall paper. Combining with this idea would produce even more variations, so it’s a winner for me and a hot croissant +

       You know, the wallpaper thing might not be practical but a scaled down version of this might. Just have a big mural of some beautiful landscape that you peel away like a calendar when you want a change of scenery.   

       I could see this as something for waiting rooms in doctor's offices and the like. Plus you'd get a re- occuring income from this because the wall would be ruined by sticking this big 4 x 8 series of peel away posters on the wall so you'd have to keep buying new ones. Go the full "let's make money" route and have the pictures be seasonal based like a calendar showing trees turning color in autumn etc and put the month in one corner so you'd HAVE to peel it off.   

       Then take the money you make selling these devious wall destroying time consumers "Hey, whose turn is it to peel off the stupid wall mural this month?" and buy stuff with it.

       Didn't you post an explosive version of that a while ago?   

       // Go the full "let's make money" route and have the pictures be seasonal based like a calendar showing trees turning color in autumn etc and put the month in one corner so you'd HAVE to peel it off. //   

       That's a good way to avoid the problem with the original of having to decide on your wallpaper patterns/images and their order months/years in advance of a given refresh.

       //and buy stuff with it// D'oh! <smacks forehead> NOW it makes sense. I'd just been stashing it all in boxes and wondering why people were so crazy about it.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 27 2019
  

       Pity; you might now come looking for these boxes. I mean those. Those boxes.   

       It was good while it lasted.

       Hey, money in boxes is part of a balanced portfolio, but if you really want to diversify I'd put some into jars as well.

       //full-face helmets often use tear-off visor films;//   

       You could reduce costs by just having all residents and visitors wear such helmets with whatever patterns you choose printed as an overlay on the visor films.

       Looks like this idea was halfbaked in 2003 and 2015 - link.

       Godsdammit. I swear I'm being stalked by a time traveller.

       [doctorremulac3] I have just been putting money in a portfolio and wondering why nothing is happening. I'll go and balance it across some boxes and jars.

       I'd even bunned [4and20]'s and I'm pretty sure I've read [neelandan]'s before—maybe it was what I was remembering above.
