Robot can camouflage itself and change color depending on the environment | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of researchers from South Korea created a robot inspired by chameleons. In addition to having the appearance of this reptile, the prototype is capable of changing the color of its skin depending on the environment. According to the scientists, it is an adaptive characteristic that has never been replicated in robotics. In the same way, they believe their invention could pave the way for developing a new artificial camouflage technology. How does it work? This innovative robot uses color sensors, which are small heaters made of silver nanowires and thermochromic materials that can change color when exposed to different temperatures. The researchers were able to develop several high-resolution skin patterns that allowed the robot to transition between colors almost instantly. Ac...

They develop flexible film inspired by chameleons | Digital Trends Spanish

One of the best known characteristics of chameleons is the ability they have to change their colors to camouflage themselves, communicate or regulate temperature. Scientists have tried to replicate this property in order to apply it to anti-counterfeiting technologies in addition to electronic displays. Now a group of researchers has developed a flexible film that changes color in response to stretching, pressure or moisture. Scientists had already imitated the crystalline nanostructures of chameleon skin in several materials that change color, although these materials are difficult to find or depend on non-renewable oil resources. For their part, cellulose nanocrystals are a renewable material that can self-assemble into a film with iridescent structural colors. The researchers of...
