Greg Sotzing of the University of Connecticut in Storrs has developed threads of electrochromic polymers, which change color in response to an applied electric field reports the New Scientist.

Those electrochromic polymers could be woven into a 'pixel grid'. Via a camera the surrounding could be captured and displayed on the fabric. A T-shirt made from this fabric could let you blend in with the flower wallpaper in your room.

The camouflage or Chameleon clothing concept is not new. In 2003 BusinessWeek reported about DuPont and EIC Laboratories Inc. working on electronic camouflage for the US military. Three years have passed.
Is it working yet? I am not sure if this is a soldier over there in the corner, I just have the feeling something is there.More details about Professor Greg Sotzing on his site.
The Transparent Cloak works already (at least on trade-shows), but you need to look through a lens.
