Ok maybe not in the shops for Christmas, but an interesting development.





Cloaking device' idea proposed

The cloaking devices that are used to render spacecraft invisible in Star Trek might just work in reality, two mathematicians have claimed.

They have outlined their concept in a research paper published in one of the UK Royal Society's scientific journals.

Nicolae Nicorovici and Graeme Milton propose that placing certain objects close to a material called a superlens could make them appear to vanish.

Well, if they were to be made (and this is assuming that they work and are portable) I doubt that they will hit the supermarket shelves, simply because;

1. The mlitary will need it for stealth attcks
2. People who will use it to rob houses etc could very easily get it

If this does work, it will be an amazing achievement!
