Well I can see a few applications for this technology, now when will they mass market the pocket size version

Invisibility at the flick of a switch




Adverts for x-ray specs have tantalised kids throughout the decades. Sadly the reality is always a pair of useless plastic glasses, but this could all change due to a breakthrough made at Imperial College London. By exploiting the way that atoms move in solids the researchers have made solid materials turn completely transparent. 'This real life x-ray specs effect relies on a property of matter that is usually ignored that the electrons it contains move in a wave-like way', says Chris Phillips. 'What we have learnt is how to control these waves directly'.

The secret to this breakthrough at Imperial College London is specially patterned crystals made up of nanoscale boxes that hold electrons. 'Basically we have made 'designer atoms'',

Sauron, do you think that this poster may have observed a working military platform using this tech?

I want video!

Curiously here,



researchers have made solid materials turn completely transparent.


emphasis on the words have made as in they've already succeeded. That picture is an artists impression, right?

Lost_Mind, thanks for the link to that thread, seeing this article is reported to be from an English university, it does seem to come together, and of course it would be a military venture. The common man would not need this.
But I still want the pocket version

Drooling, while biding my time until the consumer version comes out!

Ohh yeah.

If this stuff is about to be rolled out commercially, and its being openly discussed you know the military either has it or long ago discovered why it's not a good idea.

Are there any reports from Iraq about invisible vehicles etc? Just think a high energy laser on a truck or tank with cloaking tech would be so lethal. The laser is silent and invisible so the enemy wouldnt even know what was happening

Yup even better...

Imagine a lighter then air ship "modern unconventional blimp"cloaked sitting above a region watching whats going on below them. Strap on a small power plant possibly nuclear, nuclear planes have been made with harder specs, and now you have a cloaked airship with a near inexaustible "20 year" source of energy and a laser. Think of the possiblities.

Yeah we could all be being watched by thousands of these blimps in every city
