It’s the hottest trend in soldier style, and it will help with the war. Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s genius prof Yoel Fink has been working overtime with his Department of Material Science colleagues to create an amazing material that can actually change colors. This new molecular combo mixes super skinny layers of glass and plastic which can actually reflect ALL light, creating any color Vera Wang could think up.

While this hot new invention will initially be used for our troops overseas, it’s just a matter of time until it hits American runway fashion as well. By adding Yoel Fink’s thread in their uniforms, the U.S. Army hopes to create an "optical bar code" which will allow soldiers to easily tell who’s the enemy and who isn’t, even in the midst of fog, smoke, dust and darkness.

Fast forward another two or three years and that sexy-styled tank your boyfriend picked up for you in the ugliest color ever actually does not need to be returned.

That’s right, folks, from home, YOU will be able to change the colors of your clothes until you are thoroughly pleased. This hot new thread is sure to revolutionize the fashion industry. Stats for Color Changing Fabric Trending: Older & Mild
