One Step Closer to Invisibility Cloak Invention

by Stephen on August 10, 2008

Invisible Cloak Using Metamaterials

Scientists say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people and objects invisible. This feat is accomplished by using Metamaterials able to reroute light, forcing light around objects like water flowing around boulders in a stream. The waves of light come in and are swept around the cloak and reconstructed on the other side while avoiding the interior region, so it looks as if they just passed through free space. Watch out guys, someone maybe standing just next to you, invisible!  [LiveScience]
