Corduroy Rogers

fabric that makes images
  [vote for,

I grew up with corduroy. I loved my corduroy trousers and in my young adult years, a cord jacket was an essential.

One of the great features of the material for me was the way it subtly changed colour when brushed in different directions. Corduroy Rogers takes advantage of this quality by using it create actual images. Here's how it works:

The idea is quite simple - the image to be created is generated by stiffening areas of the corduroy tufting in such a way as combing it allows these areas to present as a slightly different shade. The effect is subtle, so the illustration shows an exaggerated version for greater clarity

Roy Rogers has been chosen (for obvious reasons) to launch the new fabric image range, but other iconic figures are available on request.

Irrelevant, except it involved le Roi, burning men, and special clothing. [8th of 7, Jan 17 2021]

       Suggested Sp. "CorduRoy Rogers" ?   

       This is, after all, the slow class. You need to make the witticism slightly more obvious.

       I saw a Burning Man shirt which was made of many small metallic "scales" with 2 colors on the opposite sides, so rubbing the scales in a head-to-toe direction showed the blue side but rubbing in a toe- to-head direction showed the orange side. One could draw patterns on the shirt by rubbing one way or the other.

       Was it made out of corduroy?

       //I grew up with corduroy.//   

       I knew there was something disturbingly off. I was forced to wear out-of-style hand-me-down corduroy pants that probably originated from your place in the timeline of fashion, the same folk who wore polyester suits and thought that kitchens should be the color of an army vehicle.   

       Would it show Buck Rogers on the other?
