“Interacket”: The Color-Changing Jacket That Turns You Into a Human Chameleon

Norwegian designers Drap og Design just unveiled the Interacket, an interactive jacket that, depending on the surfaces you touch, changes colors with embedded LED lights. Behold, it’s lit.

Just like a chameleon, if you touch a green wall, your body will light up green; if you touch your friend’s blue shirt, the jacket will turn blue.

Its painter’s suit exterior makes it look like a normal raincoat, but there’s an interior layer of reflective foil made from emergency heating blankets, two Arduino chips and a color sensor to make the magic happen. For now, it’s only lined with blue, red, and green lights, but that’s still enough to turn some heads or strike up a conversation. I love the future.
