Now You See It, Now You Don’t – The Invisible Man Becomes A Reality

Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a revolutionary material that promises to turn into reality a technology drawn from the science fiction movies – invisibility. Experts were inspired from the camouflage techniques used by octopuses and squids.

The material developed by the scientists is made of a network of cells containing a heat-sensitive dye capable of changing its color.

The lower layer includes a series of photosensitive sensors that detect the changes in light intensity and the exterior one uses a temperature sensitive pigment that changes color from black to fully transparent at exactly 47 degrees Celsius.
