Humans can also change color like a chameleon. The place they pass through will be able to change the color of their body the same way. South Korean scientists have created such an artificial skin that acts like a chameleon.
Scientists from Seoul National University, who prepared it, say that it changes its color in real time according to the background. Which can make a big difference in the future.
Robotic chameleon tested with artificial skin
To tell the merits of the skin, scientists have prepared an artificial chameleon with a plastic body. Chameleon covered with artificial skin.
During the trial, the artificial chameleon was run on strips of different colors. The body was changing color according to whichever band the chameleon was walking on.
How artificial skin changes color, understand it too
Scientists say, the skin of this chameleon can recognize and imitate the surrounding color-pattern. The reason behind this is not the harmony of colors, but a kind of warmth.
A sensor embedded in the skin of a robotic chameleon detects colours. Tiny nanowires attached to it heat its layer and show the same color closest to a robotic chameleon.
Researchers believe that this artificial skin can bring a big change. It can also be used for battlefields, fashion shows, cars and buildings.
Army personnel will be able to escape from enemies
According to Seoul National University mechanical engineer Seung Hwan, the best use of artificial skin will be the army personnel. This skin will work to hide them from enemies as it will adapt to the surrounding environment.
