Soldier of Pixel

Author: seven March 18, 2009

2009_03_13_vojnik1_thumbCouple of days ago, Croatian Armed forces got brand new shiny uniforms. Timing is doubtful (hello recession!), but uniforms really are nice. Usual camouflage texture is replaced with pixelated texture along with pixelated map of Croatia (which I think is very cool). Purpose of pixelated texture is not to achieve maximum bling effect at battlefront nor to rise design awareness, this type of texture is actually called MARPAT (short for MARine PATtern) and in theory, it is a far more effective camouflage than standard uniform patterns because it mimics the dappled textures and rough boundaries found in natural settings.

  • My understanding is that the image sensors in digital night vision devices have difficulty discerning pixelated textures.
