I always found the dazzle camo interesting.  They did try it on planes as well, but it never took off.  (Yes, pun shamelessly intended)


For another odd take on camoflage, check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yehudi_lights 


I think the British did some similar experiments with variants of Leigh lights.
