Scientists at Duke University and MIT have developed a new product that mimics the skin of cephalopods. Many members of this class of animals, which includes octopuses and cuttlefish, have the ability to quickly change the color of their skin in order to camouflage themselves in their environment. Taking a page from this biology, Stephen L. Craig, Xuanhe Zhao, and others have created an elastomer that responds to signals to produce texture and color changes similar to what a cephalopod might use to evade a predator.
