Good day

Just for discussion, do you think it is possible to use Arduino to build adaptive camouflage? any brainstorming ideas?

You're going to need at minimum a full-blown desktop PC, probably a server tower, with some really high-end components in order to process that many video streams on the fly like that.

You really need to explain in detail your concept of "adaptive camouflage".

adaptive camo refers to changing of colours to blend with the environment...like a chameleon. i came across this during my googling where some one is trying to build similar stuff for his uav..see link http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/adaptive-camouflage but i think he was hindered in the quest as he having problem with the weight as he is using LED. Perhaps there is other way to do it... smiley

that is true if we are thinking of using digital image manipulation techniques. E.g. manipulating the color of the water see link http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-Can-a-Magnet-Change-the-Color-of-a-Liquid-59251.shtml

but that is real advance and out of my league... smiley

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

You can show the concept of adaptive camouflage with a relative small sketch.

Place 1 or more colour sensors - https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10904 - under your Arduino (you might need to multiplex).
These detect the colours (+position if more) under the Arduino.
Above the Arduino you let 1 or more RGB LEDs reflect the colour seen by the sensor. (place a paper on top to diffuse the light).

If you now move the Arduino above a coloured landscape the LED's will adjust their light to the ground underneath showing the concept of adaptive camouflage.
