Customers using an electronic with a light guide today usually see the light guide is recessed in order to

hide it with other structural designs. Since the light guides are typically white in appearance the color

choice is limited for light transmissivity, visibility of light guide structure is not ideal for ID design. This

proposed solution would apply a thermal sensitive material that would change with the low emitted

heat from LED lights to become transparent. In this way, when lighting is switched off the light guide

would blend into the industrial design allowing for more flexibility of the product design and light guide

color selection.
