Polish Scientists Developing Chameleon Tank Camo

The Polish Military is no stranger to great camouflage and Reuters has now released that Polish scientists are utilizing modern technology to create an adaptable camouflage that adjusts to its surroundings. The video below gives the full scoop, but the basic gist is the use of electrochromic plates that can change colors to blend in with the given environment. One of the most intriguing aspect is the ability to integrate the same technology into clothing and beyond. We have seen many allude to the capability of a "Predator" style camouflage as well as the purported capability to bend light, so that a given object can be concealed from view. We are excited to see actual applications and their ability for concealment to be clearly demonstrated albeit in its infancy, however we would like to think that what we are actually seeing is just the tip of the iceberg for what is actually already available.
