Innovative Chameleon Scarf to match your outfit

Forget about spending hours deciding on scarf that matches with your dress.

Just put Chameleon shawl on and the rest will do!

The magic shawl automatically changes colour to suit an outfit.

Created by Akira Wakita and colleagues at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan, this shawl has interwoven pixels having red, blue and green light-emitting diodes (LEDs) into the scarf which pixels regulate the brightness of each type of diode and impart a different shade to scarf.
The concept behind Wearable Synthesis is that modular clothing pieces can use input and output sensors, actuators and processors to communicate various signals, while preserving fashion's aesthetics.

In one prototype, lights within an elegant skirt's pleats change color according to the user's body temperature, and also pulsate according to the pace at which the wearer walks.

Lights on the back of a matching jacket also color shift in reaction to body temperature, and lights within the jacket project out when it is unzippered, several garments can be layered and will communicate amongst themselves, enabling a color-coordinated fashion statement.

Wearable Synthesis also allows for ambient communication: one prototype garment lights up when its infrared sensors detects someone nearby wearing another prototype from the set.
This means that if somebody is wearing dark blue, for example, the scarf will automatically turn up an attractive shade of light blue to match. A kind of colour coordination will be established automatically, Wakita informed.

A programme, which has been inserted in microcomputer transforms the colour of shawl to match the outfit, said Akira Wakita. He also added that approximately 4000 colours could be created, the difference of which cannot be distinguished by a human eye.
