You only need eyes to appreciate the color change that occurs in a polymer matrix when the bistable rotaxane shown is switched between its ground‐state (green) and metastable‐state (red) co‐conformers. Not only is an electrochromic device within reach, but a universal switching mechanism seems to be on the cards.
