Chameleons are known for their color-changing abilities, but this curled up lizard is made up Kupfertist.Wu goes one step further with this gift of camouflage. Made of brass and manganese steel, the cleverly designed creature disguises its extraordinarily long tongue as a thin tape measure that, when extended, climbs up to two meters high. The playful gadget tends to sell out quickly, although there are some of them out there right now Etsy and the Coppertist.Wu site.
