Budapest designer creates chameleon fabric


Judit Eszter Karpati, a Budapest-based textile designer, has created a unique colour-changing fabric that can blend itself with the colour of the background, just like a chameleon.

According to Gizmodo, the fabric installation, which was originally combined textile art and digital media, is a programmable, electronic, colour-changing textile interface that can be used in various kinds of applications.

Incorporated with sound files and sensors, the handmade two-piece textile display is woven with nichrome wires and screen-printed with thermo-chromatic dyes, infused with pre-programmed patterns.
