Colour-changing artificial 'chameleon skin' powered by nanomachines

Colour-changing material could be used for active camouflage and displays The animal kingdom’s colour changers – most notably chameleons and squid – deploy cellular mechanisms to adapt their appearance to blend in with their surroundings and signal to other creatures. This trick has been keenly sought for many years by humans for similar purposes. Now, […] The post Cambridge team creates “chameleon” skin appeared first on The Engineer.
