This material was used by scientists to develop a 14-millimeter disk, separated into 12 parts, similar to the petals. In the dark these “petals” curled and formed in the middle of the circle something similar to a pupil.

In order to drive reacted to light, the scientists added in the material with a special red dye. While the invention is not fully finished, because now the iris only reacts to artificial light having a greater brightness.
