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