I'll admit I fell in love with this marketing gimmick. I get such a kick out of the color changing. Icing on the cake for a dream bike build.

I would sign up if they made this magic paint with black-white effect :)
Does it fade over the time?

does the paint change according to temperature? in the third photo...looks like the sun was on one side of the bike...thus, the patches of yellow versus orange. i've seen the Burple, but not the color change paint in person.

It does, there is one at my LBS (which unfortunately for my wallet, also happens to be in my office building). Apparently it changes around 20-22 degrees Celsius, so when the close the shop up for the night and turn the aircon off you can watch it change colour before your eyes, very nice.

I've seen one at my lbs too. They even have the matching helmet. You can just rub the paint with your finger and it'll change. Way out of my price range though :(

Never thought I'd say this, but is specialized the only doing interesting things with paint? This color changing one is definitely cool. Also love the purple chameleon scheme they have. Reminds me of the old klein paint jobs.

Sweet.

My sister was on a team of researchers who developed a range of chromoflair-style paint for DuPont back around 2000-2002. I am well into all this kind of thing.

Between this, and the evidence from Luescher Teknik that Specialized actually know what they are doing when it comes to working with carbon, I am thinking I might be in the market for an S-Works (once they make it lighter, add DM brakes and hanger, and let me design my own paint job, obviously).
