Glow in the Dark Breast Implants

Never Stub Your Toe In The Dark Again!
  [vote for,

These breast implants are filled with a luminescent fluid that glows brightly when agitated. Getting out of bed in the middle of the night would jostle them enough to get them to glow like headlights. If more light is required, firmly grasp the breasts and shake vigorously -- high beams! Power outages will pose no problems when one of these ladies is around. (This will be an excellent way to earn a little extra income) When no movement occurs, such as when sleeping, the light slowly recedes.

       not sure about that - I thought I read once that babies could see light from inside the womb. a light glow would be sufficient.   

       I think I'd prefer a breast shaped night light to a real light bulb in a person (yes of course, glow in the dark testicles are next on the wish list perhaps)

       //glow-in-the-dark testicles// [marked-for-tagline]   

       to turn the light on or off do you "flip the toggle switch" or "pull the chain" ?
FlyingToaster, Oct 02 2010

       It's easy to transilluminate breasts. I'm thinking of doing it regularly. The kind of light given off by a glow stick would be enough, though using actual glowsticks in this situation would be a rather short term solution.
nineteenthly, Oct 02 2010

       Headlights indeed.
DrWorm, Oct 02 2010

       Brilliant - useful and practical.
hippo, Oct 02 2010

       Not so sure about the glow in the dark testicles, [po], but surely it would be possible to come up with a glow in the dark penile implant...
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

       Didn't this appear in a Naked Gun or Austen Powers film? {Linky, but neither of them}
Dub, Oct 02 2010

       //...however, ambient light is much brighter than any luminescence likely to be emitted from an unpowered subcutaneous implant...//   

       [21], as I imagined it, you would not be able to see any light emitted during the day -- not even if the proud owner were engaged in a lively racquetball game.
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

       //Didn't this appear in a Naked Gun or Austen Powers film?//   

       I don't recall that, [Dub], but I do recall that Goldmember's member glowed pretty brightly -- but, that was due to an entirely different reason, right? In Goldmember's case, his entire unit was replaced with gold.
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

       [Grogster] No, definitly, Top Secret - I'll try and find the clip - In any event see Electric Six vid
Dub, Oct 02 2010

       YIKES! I just checked out the link, [Dub]! What I had in mind would not require batteries...
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

       {Top Secret! Linky}
Dub, Oct 02 2010

       thank goodness there's no mention of fishnet tights...
po, Oct 02 2010

       ;) - How are YOU doing, [po]?   

       // It does seem I have a very good mamory for glowing jumper puppies {Accidental typo} AND videos with ladies in tights
Dub, Oct 02 2010

       [po] //thank goodness there's no mention of fishnet tights// Thank you for rectifying that deficiency.   

       Now, regarding power requirements:   

       According to Drews et al 2001, Journal of Power Sources v97-8, pp 747-9 an implantable pacemaker/defibrillator battery can supply pulsed power on the order of 5W at 2.5V for 10 seconds. Pulsed power should be OK if LEDs are used for the light source. I don't know what it takes to transilluminate breasts, but you can transilluminate a person's head with an ordinary medical penlight. Replacement bulbs for those are, e.g. 0.250A * 2.5V = 0.625W. Those are incandescent bulbs, hence a conservative estimate of what would be required for LEDs. So power requirements don't seem excessive, provided cost is no object.   

       Glowing testicles should have even lower power requirements, as less tissue to shine through. Would be startling for an unprepared sexual partner: perhaps a novelty way to end a relationship?   

       Corrections invited from those who know more about these things.

       [mouseposture]"Glowing testicles should have even lower power requirements"
Bollocks! - Speak for yourself!
Dub, Oct 02 2010

       [Dub] evidently knows more about these things. I stand corrected.
mouseposture, Oct 02 2010

       Willie and "the boys" works for me; Willie and the "novelty (incandescent/LED) testicles" does not. Would that not have a rather deleterious effect on the performance/function of said testicles? The whole idea of replacing the boys gives me the creeping heebie jeebies.
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

xenzag, Oct 02 2010

       //creeping heebie jeebies// <Sigh> The HB just isn't ready to embrace posthumanism.
mouseposture, Oct 02 2010

       [mouse], as regards "...creeping heebie jeebies..." I was speaking only for myself and not the HB in toto. As for what I am willing to "embrace," the list is lengthy and occasionally erotic, painful, ticklish, and/or wildly unpredictable. Film at 11.
Grogster, Oct 02 2010

       Also in one of the Naked Guns, but no direct shot is shown. Instead, just a 'flash' sound and Leslie Nielson's lit-up face.

       Odontodactylus latirostris (gods but I miss italics here) is a shrimp with luminous testicles. They don't seem particularly happier than other shrimp, though.
MaxwellBuchanan, Aug 30 2014

       //Odontodactylus latirostris   

       They must hate that, always being easy up to pick out in identity parades.
not_morrison_rm, Aug 30 2014

       Just exactly what kind of identity parades have you been participating in [morri]?
Skewed, Aug 30 2014

       Never actually been on one, but, gives me an idea...see link.   

       Hang on, used to go to an FE college, and the police station was across the road, they used to wander over and try and rope in students who wouldn`t mind taking part....I would have remembered that, I`m sure..
not_morrison_rm, Aug 31 2014

       College students you say, those people traditionally encountered (if at all) in any setting outside of their natural habitat, on a pub crawl? / It's entirely possible there may be many things you don't remember ;)
Skewed, Aug 31 2014

       Only really memorable bit was drinking 3 pints of scrumpy on an empty stomach, and my pupils contracted so much the whole world went dark.   

       More interesting was once at uni, I got so drunk the lass I was talking, my hearing centre went on the fritz and her speech was broken up into phonemes...and so completely unintelligible.
not_morrison_rm, Aug 31 2014

       That youtube Electric Six video was ... illuminating.
normzone, Jan 13 2017

       This idea needs more nitrogen triiiodide.
Wrongfellow, Jan 13 2017

       Wow. Take me back to my high school days. Let it dry on the windowsill next to a drop of honey ... catching flies and all that.
normzone, Jan 13 2017

       Excuse me, I seem to have wandered into the Light Entertainment section. I was looking for the Science News.
AusCan531, Jan 14 2017

       This would provide research into how light affects sleep and how breast-feeding affects fetishes later in life. But I don't think there's a chemical that can turn turbulence into light energy directly. We'll need to also test the effects of continual, high-voltage low-current electricity being passed through a human body.
Voice, Jan 14 2017

       //We'll need to also test the effects of continual, high-voltage low-current electricity being passed through a human body.// You wouldn't need a full-size test, just a testicle.
