BOFFINS at a Japanese university have made a scarf that will match the other kit you're wearing, said.

The scarf is woven using optical fibres, and has a sensor to figure out the colour of the clothes you're wearing.

The thing triggers LEDs which then illuminate the scarf accordingly.

Presumably if you're wearing a black suit the thing doesn't light up at all. said that the boffins at Keio University have also designed a shirt which will change colour depending on body temperature. µ
