future fabrics in hue of butterfly

VIA biodsign The Blue Morpho butterfly produces an amazing fiber called Morphotex, the first fiber material that realizes a mysterious color illumination with no pigmentation.The look is pretty cool, hopefully this is just being used for inspiration. Or else these magical butterflies may go the way of the unicorns. There, I said it.

  1. Oh no, that's made out of actual butterflies? We can make a computer and the internet but we can't make fabric that looks like that without killing something beautiful? Fantastic.
