You know that old joke that people love to tell you when you're wearing camo-"Oh, I didn't see you there, because you were camouflaged!" Well, that joke is about to become a reality, as a North Carolina company has begun creating custom, site specific camo gear. Here's how it works:
...because the patterns are created from photos that have been taken at different focal lengths it inhibits depth perception -- making it more challenging for the brain to see the camouflaged surfaces as a single object.
The camouflage may even receive a further upgrade, with the software firm applying for a patent on an "adaptive" material consisting of a vinyl substrate, a flexible image display that could adjust to the environment, and thermoelectric panels that could modify the soldier's heat signature.
Now no one is safe, because someone may be blending in with the wall, or sofa, or even your front lawn! Better carry around a sharp stick just in case. On the other side-if you hold still too long you may be exposed to things you can't unsee, and therapy is very pricey these days, so please use this new camo fabric with care.
