Concept: Structural Coloration
There are certain types of plastic that has what’s called “nanogrooves” that when the light hits them in a certian way, the light is reflected and creates a color. We wondered about how we could incorporate this light reflection into something else.
We made chocodescent as a fun experiment with food. You take a piece of the material with nanogrooves, pour the chocolate on top, and it will take on the nanogrooves, and reflect light too.
Nanogrooves work with lots of different things, so who knows what’s next!
