The use of cholesteric liquid crystal films, using the remarkable property of cholesteric liquid crystals to change their color at the temperature changes, is well known for measuring temperature, in medicine, in jewelry and so on. The article presents the practical use of cholesteric liquid crystal films in the developed musical color device, which “animates” the pattern with a multi-colored color in accordance with the frequency spectrum of the signal emanating from the musical electronic device on the black panel, and in the developed indicator of sorption processes, which highlights by the red color the collector’s coating of the surface of the mineral safely, cheaply and quickly.

Keywords: Cholesteric liquid crystals films; breast cancer; music color device; indicator of sorption processes; optical properties of cholesteric liquid crystals, temperature change.
