Make it pink. Make it blue. Or make it pink and blue stripes. With color-changing smart fabric, you can change your outfit with the press of a button on an app.

Researchers at the University of Central Florida are taking wearables to the next level with a new color-changing fabric they call ChroMorphous. Controlled by an app, this battery-powered fabric physically changes color when turned on.

The possibilities go beyond a purse, as shown in the demo. The UCF team got this technology to be scalable, so it can be mass produced using a process called fiber spinning. The researchers are now working with fashion designers to create color-changing dresses — but to make it more appealing, they want to get the threads even thinner. Currently, the material feels similar to canvas, like a tote bag.
