I have seen these used on model helicopters for use when night flying...
they look really great!. I believe the technology is "cold cathode
fluorescent displays" as they run with a fairly high voltage ~100vac
converter.

They are look of like solid state neon in a plastic tube.

Does anyone know where this stuff can be bought?

cheers

Are you sure it's not EL?
 Take a look at :

Hope that helps,

I haven't seen a 'flexible' cold cathode lamp anywhere before. I assumed the
partial vacuum inside the bulbs would deform any flexible tubing. I think
most scanners use cold cathode lamps due to their unform and accurate colour
temperatures

Heres a link to some poeple that sell them:

If you're looking for a local source, try the shops that sell all sorts
of "enhancements" for your car, such as annoying flashing LEDs. A brand
name to look for is Hotwire IIRC. I believe I even saw some at a Target
store in the US.

I don't know specifically where they can be bought but the ones
marketed to the RC people (me included!) go by the name NightOps. A
web search should turn them up.

Boy, that sounds like neat stuff. Unfortunately, the guys who own the link
you supplied have decided to take the 2002 year off.

Yep, It's pretty funny but I also noticed that after I posted the url. The
elwire site does have lots of info , but if you actually want to get your
hand on some of the stuff you'll have to try somewhere else: I'm trying to
find an outfit that sells a cheap development/evaluation kit.

A quick google search comes up with some interesting prospects.

The flexible displays have no 'vacuum' in them. They use a very thin layer
of special light and electron emitters emitters between transparent (or
not) electrodes driven with ac. The technology is called
electro-luminiscent panels, short EL I think.

Here's something that the rocketry crowd uses for
night launches. They're flat flexible EL strips that
are powered by a 9v battery and inverter:
