Engineers develop a programmable 'camouflaging' material inspired by octopus skin

This week, engineers at Cornell University report on their invention of stretchable surfaces with programmable 3-D texture morphing, a synthetic ‘camouflaging skin’ inspired by studying and modeling the real thing in octopus and cuttlefish. The engineers, along with collaborator and cephalopod biologist Roger Hanlon of the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, report on their controllable soft actuator in the Oct. 13 issue of Science. …read more
