Chameleon Clock App
View Slideshow

The Chameleon Clock app isn’t just another app that displays the time – it uses your iPhone or iPad camera to capture the environment and turns it into the clock’s background. Just like a chameleon would, the camera allows your device to blend into the space around it. It can either sample a color that it sees or play the live video of what it sees making your device appear transparent. Cool, right?
