Designed for invisible cameras camouflage

The cloaking Technology used by mankind for many centuries, and camouflage went from the products are literally out of leaves and sticks to high-tech systems that can hide the presence of a person. However, experts from the University of California were able to create something really impressive: a material that can mask a person from infrared cameras and sensors.

Like most inventions, the new camo was inspired by nature: scientists watching the squid, I noticed that they can change the color of their skin, deforming the fabric itself. American researchers decided to recreate the technology and on the surface of the elastic polymeric film applied with a thin layer of aluminium. When stretching the resulting material is able to reflect light in the infrared range.

Next, the researchers placed the film on the surface and began to heat it up. It turned out that in the heated state, the film was clearly visible on the infrared camera. However, as soon as heating was stopped, the object completely disappeared from the monitors and became invisible. In the future, experts plan to develop based on new technology, new types of camouflage, which will make the wearer invisible to digital devices.
