Aired Friday night on NBC:
Military experts say that companies are now very close to developing technology that can make tanks invisible.... Invisible tanks??? Don’t we have enough defense contractors ripping off America as it is? What’s it going to be like when they start charging us for invisible tanks?
“You owe us $10 billion.”
“Where are the tanks?”
(Pointing out at empty space)“Right there.” !!!

Question....does sonar still pick up an invisible tank?
A research team at Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering comprised of Professor Christopher Davis, Research Scientist Igor Smolyaninov, and graduate student Yu-Ju Hung, has used plasmon technology to create the world's first invisibility cloak for visible light. The engineers have applied the same technology to build a revolutionary superlens microscope that allows scientists to see details of previously undetectable nanoscale objects.
