Habitats come in all varieties and seasons. What is the perfect variety for the place you want to be? Finding the exact answer to this question is what a new discovery is all about. A provisional US Patent was just awarded for a newly-discovered algorithm for creating habitat-optimal camouflage. Here is the Press Release: Provisional US Patent Awarded for Algorithm to Create Theoretically-Optimal Camouflage | PRLog This algorithm identifies specific combinations of colors and markings (taken together called a "pattern") which exist in nature to produce the “optimal pattern”. This optimal pattern is then perfected--for any specific habitat and season--using current processing methods. An interesting observation of the algorithm is that "evolutionarily-optimal ambush camouflage" never looks like member of the plant kingdom--plants don't hide. Instead, the Press Release explains that optimal camouflage looks more like a member of the animal (reptile) kingdom. Wherever one is on Earth, indigenous in-season optimal ambush camouflage can now be quickly developed and economically produced, based on the algorithm—no more guess-work is required.
