Phosphorescent paintballs that glow in the dark
US 20070054762 A1
Abstract
By using the glo-stick formulas also known as light-sticks and the assortment of luminescence bright colors like. Red, Yellow, Green, Violet, Orange, Blue, in these paintless paintballs it will make playing in the dark or in the day light more enjoyable for the sportsman and woman and children everywhere. These three chemical compounds are all listed as non-toxic. Hydrogen peroxide 2.50 ml. Phenyl oxalate ester 1.25 ml. And the Fluorescent dye 1.25 ml. The gelatin capsule in a ball or a ball in a ball can be used, in any high power paintball air gun. Caliber 0.68 to activate them, simply squeeze the paintball with your thumb and forefinger. Over the two gelatin interior posts supporting the center capsule or ball this will rupture that center capsule or ball, this start's the premixing process now your ready to load for the dusk to dawn paintball war games sport. Have fun with it and, enjoy the assortment luminescence bright colors.

1. This will make playing the paintball war game sport more enjoyable with the added assortment of phosphorescent bright colors from the glo-stick formulas or light-stick formulas either one as the chemical compounds are exactly the same. The night-time sky will be filled with the brightly lit flying orbs. Even in the day light hours these balls will be very visible for all to see. Team's can play each using a different colored paintball. The colors are changed by the manufacturer company assembly plant making them unique and more enjoyable for all to see. All chemicals are listed as non-toxic.
Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The outer gelatin capsules are made from gelatin, glycerin, sorbitol, purified water and parabens or starch. I claim: By adding a spray on polyethlene finishing top coat, to the center capsule or ball and support posts will aide in the creation of a more brittle surface making it easier to burst the center capsule or ball of this clear type of gelatin capsule. These paintless paintballs that glow in the dark I claim As firefly paintless paintballs. And I claim can be seen from dusk to dawn. I claim the chemical compounds composition for each paintless paintballs they are as follows:

Hydrogen peroxide 2.50 ml. Phenyl oxalate ester 1.25 ml. Fluorescent dye 1.25 ml.

These three chemical compounds are all listed as non-toxic.

I claim the use of the gelatin center support posts which suspends the capsule or ball in mid air.

I claim the process in which you can squeeze to activate the chemo-luminescence process within the paintball.

I claim when firefly paintless paintball is squeezed the chemo-luminescence within the paintball its self starts the chemical reaction just like what happens in a glow-stick or light-stick when you bend it or break it the glass tube inside breaks this starts the bright chemo-luminescence process which creates the light that is given off.

I claim By changing the outer shells pigment to any other color even pastels this will change the way the paintball appears from the inside out, which means if the center capsule is host to a red chemo-luminescence and the outer shells color is a pastel blue, then the outer shell appearance would be a pastel purple, the same holds true for each of all the other six principle colors which. I claim as red, yellow green, purple, orange, blue. And I claim the outer shell pigment colors all of the ones used with these paintless paintballs products and all pastel colors and any derivative color there of.

DESIGN

FIG. 1. Page 5 is showing the side elevational view of the color's just by changing the fluorescent color this is done by the factory or manufactory assembly plant. I claim the six principle colors of red, yellow, green, purple, orange, blue as shown in FIG. 1. I Claim the two types of squeeze activated paintless paintballs as shown in FIG. 1. Type A) which is for used with a capsule in a ball and type B) which is for used with a ball in a ball. I claim both types can be used from dusk to dawn for the paintball war games sport. Each are for use with a caliber 0.68 paintball air gun.

FIG. 2. Page 6 is showing the side elevational view of the paintless paintballs please see the balls dimensions at FIG. 2. this is the caliber being 0.68 of an inch around or 17 cm while the interior ball dimensions is 0.38 of an inch or about half as big as the paintballs dimensions from the outer most point of the ball's surface.

FIG. 3. Page 7 is the side elevational view which I claim as the gelatin tubular port-posts and their dimensions at around or about 3/16″ of an inch see FIG. 3 while the length dimension is about the same as FIG. 2 but slightly smaller in length by about ⅛″ of an inch that is because of the slant cut to make it act like a plastic or gelatin porker to pork a hole in the center ball when squeezed.

FIG. 4 Page 8 is the side elevational view showing how to start the chemo-luminescence reaction process I claim squeeze activation as shown in FIG. 4 by placing a paintless paintball between your thumb and forefinger over these gelatin tubular port-post or support-posts and give them a squeeze slightly by pushing the gelatin port-posts into the center capsule or ball thus starting the chemical reaction. I claim without breaking the paintballs outer shell or surface this will rupture an crack then break through the interior sphere or capsule. I claim the tubular open ended gelatin port-posts also can be used for filling up the chemical compounds inside of each portion of the center and outer capsule. A slightly harder center capsule or ball can be used and can be form fitted into the paintballs interior structure and design. I claim either a softer gelatin center ball or capsule can be used or a harder center ball or capsule.

FIG. 5. Page 9 is the side view of the gelatin capsule in a ball or it could even be of the ball in a ball each concept use's the gelatin tubular posts this view is after it has been pre-broken from placing it between your thumb and forefinger and then squeezing this starts the hydrogen peroxide mixing within the interior capsules two combined compounds mixing all three together they react by glowing as their mix together now it can be loaded into any high power paintball air gun or gas gun with a caliber 0.68 for uses in the dusk to dawn paintball war game sport.

FIG. 6 Page 10 Shows the side view of paintball post the gelatin post as shown in FIG. 6. I claim showing the penetration from the outer ball or capsule going into the center sphere or capsule making it possible to add the chemical agents directly into the empty portion of the center or interior paintball the two chemicals compounds are as follows, phenyl oxalate ester @1.25 ml. and the fluorescent dye @1.25 ml. the dyes colors can be anyone of a half dozen or more different colors combinations. After filling up the paintless paintballs interior capsule through the hole in the gelatin tubular port-post opening which the chemical compounds where added can now be sealed in with an epoxy compound or a gelatin compound.

FIG. 7 Page 11 Show the side elevational view of paintball post FIG. 7. Which is the second post I claim Which is showing penetrating just the outer ball of the paintball to fill that empty portion of the interior of the outer paintball with the hydrogen peroxide @ 2.5 ml after that has been added through the gelatin tubular port-post opening that to can be sealed in with an epoxy compound or a gelatin compound.

FIG. 8. Page 12 Shows the side view of the paintless paintballs as it hits and object. I claim these polymeric polyethylene glycol paintballs. Can also be loaded directly into the paintball air gun or gas gun paintball hopper with the same caliber as regular 0.68 paintballs without rupturing the center interior capsule or ball. I claim as seen in FIG. 1 page 5 By changing the outer shells pigment to any other color even pastel's this will change the way the paintball appears from the inside out, which means if the center capsule is host to a red chemo-luminescence for example and the outer shells color is a pastel blue, then the outer shell appearance would be a pastel purple, once activated the same holds true for each of all the other six principle colors which. I claim as red, yellow green, purple, orange, blue. And I claim the outer shell pigment colors all of the ones used with these paintless paintballs products and all pastel colors and any derivative color there of.
