ChroMorphous – color changing fabric just got cooler

Color changing fabric used to be really popular but then it sort of fell out of fashion because the 90s was over and it was a strange time. Anyway, the College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida have updated color changing fabric and created an app controlled experience that can be used to make a variety of things called ChroMorphous.

This is heat reactive, at it’s core, but not in the way that we’re used to. Usually heat reacitive is about body heat but that’s not what is happening here. The fabric is created with thin metal wires which are heated, ever so slightly, by an electric current. The heat reacts with the fabric and it changes color. Pretty neat!

The wearer can control what colors show up, even patterns, through use of an app letting them create their own unique looks. The future is not color lovers of the world. It’s not in mass production as of yet but there are plans for such. Check out the tweet below to see it in action.
