Chameleon shawl
December 12th, 2005

Researchers have created a shawl “that automatically changes colour to suit an outfit”,this New Scientist article says.”The colour-shifting garment,dubbed a chameleon shawl,was developed by Akira Wakita and colleagues at Keio University in Tokyo,Japan.Interwoven into the scarf material are pixels containing red, blue and green light-emitting diodes (LEDs),so adjusting the brightness of each type of diode turns the scarf a different overall shade.A small sensor embedded in the garment also enables it to identify the colour of the nearest item of clothing.A microcomputer then selects a suitable colour for the scarf itself to adopt”.
