Not Bubbles-Zubbles! (Colored Bubbles)

Who knew making a colored bubble could be so hard to do? With the help of some chemist, hundreds of experiments and 11 years later, inventor Tim Kehoe created a colored bubble. This bubble is so high-tech ("dye molecule from an unstable base structure called a lactone ring") that when they’re exposed to air (when they pop) the color disappears and leaves no color stain. He’s planning on making vanishing toothpaste, paints and hair dye in the future. Pretty freakin’ cool!
