Sweden Developing Invisible Tank

Swedish engineers are working on a tank that will be able to blend into the background -- whatever that background may be. It's covered with a skin that can change its appearance:

The technology is based on sheets of hexagonal 'pixels' that are able to change temperature very quickly.

On-board cameras collect images of the vehicle's background and display that infra-red image onto the vehicle panels, making it appear to vanish.
