Flamboyant Cuttlefish

Like chameleons, cuttlefish have a remarkable ability to instantly change colour due to 'chromatophores' in their skin. These colour change cells can expand or contract, or otherwise move pigment or reflective parts around. Although precise engineering of such devices may be beyond us, we are aiming to employ as many lessons as possible from chromatophores to create a colour change material or covering for our objects.
