At first, Chromosonic by Judit Eszter Karpati, a textile designer based in Budapest, Hungary, might seem like something out of a fantasy movie. It is a fabric that changes color. Although that might not seem like anything spectacular at first, it is what makes it change color that will boggle people's minds: sound.

Bridging the digital and physical worlds, Chromosonic by Judit Eszter Karpati explores the relationship between technology and textiles by using the Arduino open-source platform. Psfk writes, "Heat-sensitive technology creates shifting patterns that are generated from processed sound files and react to environmental impulses." Wires are threaded through the fabric to help generate the heat that is caused by the sound. It is a fascinating process.
