acts just like a real chameleon!

Huey changes colour to match the colour of his surroundings

How do chameleons change colour? We’ve no idea, despite the fact we just Googled it. The process is far too complex to comprehend. So let’s concentrate on the amazing abilities of Huey the Colour Changing Chameleon. Because instead of mind-boggling chromatophores, this cute lizard uses gob-smacking LED technology to match the colour of whatever he sits on. Wow!

Got a red mousemat? Plonk Huey on top and he’ll glow red. Painted the room yellow? Hold Huey against the wall and he’ll glow yellow. If the colours around you don’t appeal, Huey can cycle through a kaleidoscope of shades and pause on your favourite – just give his soft vinyl body a gentle squeeze. If only real pets were this adaptable. (They’re not, we’ve tried).

Comes with a colour experiment sheet

Use the included colour cycle sheet to test Huey's colour changing skills


So how does Huey perform his colour changing magic? In a nutshell a sophisticated optical sensor determines the colour beneath him and matches it by adjusting the multi-coloured LEDs imbedded in his body. Amazing, eh? It’s just a shame he can’t catch flies or transform into George Dubya but we’re sure boffins are working on it.

Huey makes a great night light for kids and lizard loving adults, and he’s guaranteed to blow fellow geeks away with his high tech colour-shifting shenanigans. Most incredible of all we’ve managed to write well over 200 words about a chameleon without mentioning Boy George, Culture Club or THAT song. All together now, ‘You come and go, you come and go-oo-oo-oo!’

Firebox says: He's not currently in stock, we will have an estimated due date up on the site as soon as we get one.
Yay! I'm so glad you're stocking this now! I remember when I requested you stock this ages ago! Officially made my year! I'll be buying at least three of these little guys when I get paid!
Jasmine, Waterlooville - 10th January 2012
This is the coolest thing I have ever bought. I am 41 my ex-husband left me because of it he thought I was to childish with it and this is my new bestie.
Beth, Liverpool - 27th July 2011
Hey there, few questions about this little buddy. How many colors can he really display ? What happens if it's put on a multicolor surface... does it display a nice brownish smear or does it choose one colour ?
DocKami, Paris - 12th May 2011
Firebox says: Huey will only recognise one colour at a time, and there is an 'experimentation' sheet in each box that runs through the list of possible colours.
Seems a bit to pricey. I'll get it as something neat to put on my desk etc at the office once the price comes down. =).
