Friday Squid Blogging: More Research Inspired by Squid Skin
Research on color-changing materials:
What do squid and jellyfish skin have in common with human skin? All three have inspired a team of chemists to create materials that change color or texture in response to variations in their surroundings. These materials could be used for encrypting secret messages, creating anti-glare surfaces, or detecting moisture or damage.
They don’t really mean “encrypting”; they mean hiding. But interesting nonetheless.
