I am doing a science project.I am interested in how chameleons change colors and what this has in common with some consumer products that change colors when exposed to heat or cold or sometimes light. I have seen nail polish, tee shirts, toys, and baby spoons that change colors. I know that chameleons and these products involve pigment that is chemically changed by heat, light, or "mood." I dont really understand how this works. In the case of the chameleon, I have found a lot of information, but all I can find about consumer products is advertising and sales sites that dont tell how the products work. Can you help me or direct me to some sites? thanks.
