    Light Projection System Changes Objects’ Color and Patterns

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers at MIT have developed a method to rapidly change imagery on an object’s surface. The system, “ChromoUpdate,” pairs an ultraviolet light projector with items coated in light-activated dye. The projected light alters the reflective properties of the dye to create colorful new images in a matter of minutes. The technology may accelerate product development by allowing developers to showcase multiple color schemes and designs with a single prototype.

    The new system builds on a previous programmable matter system developed by the researchers called “PhotoChromeleon.” That system was the first to show the researchers that it could have high-resolution, multicolor textures they could program over…
