COLOUR-CHANGING CLOTHES!!!

If you’ve ever turned up at an event only to find you’ve slightly misjudged the dress code, you might be glad of technology that helps you blend into your surroundings like a chameleon. Colour-changing clothes are on their way – and we don’t mean those dodgy Hypercolor t-shirts from the 1990s.

Designers have experimented with embedding LEDs and e-Ink screens in clothing and accessories with varying levels of success. For instance, a company named ShiftWear attracted a lot of attention with its concept trainers that could change pattern thanks to an embedded e-Ink screen and accompanying app. But they never took off.

Now, the College of Optics & Photonics at the University of Central Florida has announced the first user-controlled colour-changing fabric, which enables the wearer to change its colour using their smartphone.
