Everybody wants a Thermoptic Camouflage

In 1996 the original Ghost in the Shell animation spread like a wild fire across the world and made everybody take a second look at the Japanese Animation Industry.

The plot of the movie came bundle with well known futuristic concepts like cyborgs, robots, Heads-Up Display, artificial intelligence, instant communication and the Internet. But I believe it was the Thermoptic Camouflage showcased in the first scene of the movie that had the most impact.

With the announcement of the new movie ARISE, we are getting a look at a low-tech way to achieve this technology.
