It is amazing exactly what some people get up to to justify their existance.

Did you read the linked paper, or do you think it’s just a toy ?

… there is significant military potential.

Thanks Michael, interesting article and one wonders what it will lead to in the future. Don't like the colour/pattern of your wallpaper/paint then just get sample for it to match to and voila a redecorated roomyessmiley. As you say significant military potential and as the colours are defined by temperature it could also break up an IR image to make it less identifiable though IR camouflage is already an established process for concealment.
