All camouflage is easier when not moving. Even for the chameleon. And whom or what I’m hiding from. For a fixed item like the a.c. unit it is simple to paint like the background to make it less of an eyesore. Or fake rocks over pool equipment. A suit covered with electric ink similar to what is in the Kindle as opposed to projected light, seems better. More like a chameleon or octopus which also changes texture to match. I see army tents like this in the near future, and a temputure control to direct heat down into the ground as opposed to up for infra-red detection. Now a personal unit seems more difficult since one would have to counteract any heat made by the body, to not stand out. So a cold pack of some kind it would have to be low power so it’s magnetic signature is low enough to be lost in background, yet all seems plausible to me.
