Blaze Bioscience
These guys are marketing a tumor fluorescent dye marker that homes in on cancer cells. So a dark operating room will show glowing cancers, reducing the amount of excess healthy tissue to be removed.

High-performance shape-engineerable thermoelectric painting : Nature Communicati...
Paintable TE is nice for complex shapes and secondary surface treatment is neat, but the ZT still sucks (how much room for improvement?)

Passive radiative cooling below ambient air temperature under direct sunlight : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
Interesting mixed material which re-emits heat at atmospheric IR transparency windows, effectively becoming a passive cooler. So an external radiator on earth covered with this paint can get pretty cool.

PRO-TEQ: spray applied elastomeric polyurethane - polyurea coatings
Somebody decided putting glow-in-the-dark materials inside that rubberized road coating for footpaths was a good idea, and it might be if it lasts.

Bioinspired Surfaces with Dynamic Topography for Active Control of Biofouling - Shivapooja - 2013 - Advanced Materials - Wiley Online Library
Work on making a paint that can wrinkle on demand via electrical stimulus, throwing off the beginning biofilm layer on a ships hull to prevent the later establishment of barnacles and other fouling marine life.

Keeping ship hulls free of marine organisms - Research News December 2012 - Topic 3
Interesting antifouling setup using variable low power current electrolysis of seawater via conductive hull paint to create changing local pH values, which annoys biofouling marine organisms enough to keep them from attaching themselves. Really useful for fiberglass yachts potentially, which frequently feature solar panels, though how that will change the corrosion aspects of other metal parts like propellers will be an issue.

Spray On Kit
Apparently this is the real deal, a nanoparticle/nanocapacitor suspension paint. A spray on paint kit to create either a conformal antenna or to enhance an existing antenna. They painted a tree and were able to send VHF signals 14 miles. Boosting existing antennas is anywhere from 10% to 40% (40% was 20dBm for an iPhone 3 test). The videos also talk about potential uses in other EMF applications, such as (?AC) electric motor windings.
