Chameleons change their colors by moving tiny crystals in their body to reflect color pigments. We can use this idea to create an Invisible Box that can hide valuables. The invisible box is covered by LED screens. It will take pictures of its surroundings and project it to make it seem transparent. We can use this for safekeeping valuables and solve other problems such as camouflage suit for military personnel. "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better" - Einstein.

Our main idea revolves around how chameleons change their color. We researched on how chameleons changed color, and as a team, thought of ideas of how chameleons' color changing ability can help problems in our world. We finalized on a real life problem and solution that we can solve with their ability – An Invisible Box that can hide valuables. Chameleons change their colors by moving tiny crystals in their body to reflect color pigments in their skin. We used this idea to create an invisible box that is covered by LED screens. In milliseconds, the screens will take pictures of its surroundings and will project it to seem like the object is transparent. This can be used mostly for safekeeping valuables and protecting them from theft or burglaries. We also feel this idea can be used to solve other problems such as, building camouflage suit for military personnel. It can also be used for hiding security cameras.
