I came across this interesting piece of new technology today and thought I had to share it. The tech is called FLARE and is basically a whole bunch of moving metal "flakes" or "scales" which form the walls of a building. By changing the angle of the flakes in the sun light it forms a moving membrane or skin on the building. Above is a video showing FLARE in action. Really interesting stuff I reckon, towards the end of the video they actually look at the underbelly of the tech which is also quite interesting to see.
