The randomized patterns of camouflage tricks the brain into thinking a person or object has blended into its surroundings, and to date we've seen it customized for various seasons or regions. A big problem however is the patterns have never really been created for exact environments. Now, a software design firm has developed a method for making site-specific camouflage
Dazzle camouflage was used extensively on ships during WWI and WWII. With random lines, contrasting shapes, and weird colors, it wasn't meant to hide ships, but rather to confuse the heck out of anyone looking at them, and a new study shows that Dazzle works well enough that it might actually worth be using again.
