  New Penn Engineering Professor is Developing Artificial Octopus Camouflage
  James Pikul, Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, helped developed technology known as CCOARSE, or Circumferentially Constrained and Radially Stretched Elastomer. The combination of stretchy silicone and precisely placed inflexible mesh allows 2D sheets to be inflated into predetermined 3D shapes. Pikul and his collaborators took inspiration from octopus skin, which uses a similar texture-changing trick to mimic rough surfaces.
