I saw something interesting at the mall recently--clothes that have paper-thin LED displays embedded in them. Check it out:

The LED pixels are big, so the images are coarse, but this should change with time, leading to high-resolution LED displays that span entire garments. A person could become a walking television. 

 

This will also inevitably lead to morphing camouflage outfits and invisibility cloaks: You would wear a coverall whose exterior consisted of an advanced e-ink display also studded with tiny cameras. The cameras would detect the colors and visual patterns around you and tell the pixels to change to match your surroundings. E-ink doesn't glow, so your coveralls wouldn't emit light. 

 

The first versions of such a "cloak" would cost millions of dollars apiece, but the price would eventually come down to almost nothing.

Hunter's camouflage patterns, which are suited for highly specific environments, give some clue as to how effective the LED clothing I've described will be at hiding people:

[If that link breaks, just do a Google Images search for 'hunter+camouflage'. 

 

In fact, LED clothing would be even better since it would match its appearance to the person's surroundings EXACTLY. If you stood still, it would be almost as good as being invisible. 

 

Apparently, the U.S. military has been doing secret experiments with this kind of technology to cloak warplanes:

 

 

Defense contractors have told POPULAR SCIENCE that an even more exotic skin is being tested on two stealth aircraft at the high-security Groom Lake air base [Area 51] in Nevada. The skin is derived from an electromagnetically conductive polyaniline-based radar-absorbent composite material. It is optically transparent except when electrically charged, much like the LCDs used in laptop computers.

 
What makes this new material attractive is that it can change brightness and color instantaneously. Photo-sensitive receptors, mounted on all sides of the plane, read the ambient light and color of the sky and ground. An onboard computer adjusts the brightness, hue, and texture of the skin to match the sky above the plane or the terrain below it.

We often do not hear each other during the conversation, and if we wear such a T-shirt, then when talking to you a person will not look at you at all, but only at the picture on your shirt ))
