New New 'invisibility cloak': Octopus-inspired camouflage systems automatically read surroundings and mimic them

8.18.14 New 'invisibility cloak': Octopus-inspired camouflage systems automatically read surroundings and mimic them | "Our device sees color and matches it. It reads the environment using thermochromatic material," said Cunjiang Yu, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Houston.


Researchers have developed a technology that allows a material to automatically read its environment and adapt to mimic its surroundings. Cunjiang Yu, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Houston and lead author of the paper, said the system was inspired by the skins of cephalopods, a class of marine animals which can change coloration quickly, both for camouflage and as a form of warning.
