If you look at frame 3:01, you can see some sort of pack or belt on his right hip, also at 3:05 a belt, sidearm holster or pack is visible.

If you notice, the suit is starting to change to the green color of the tank as soon as he starts to climb it. Maybe the suit is more adept at picking up ligher colors faster than darker. He is probably wearing a photovoltic suit, kinda like the paper you print photos on, except his is electro/chemically charged.

I work in the CG industry, and I have to say, this is no fake.
I'm not going to get into all the details. I just do not think it's fake.

Very interesting technology.

I work in the CG industry too and i also have to say that i think that this is no fake.

The guy is jumping for a few frames when he shuts down the cloak which could be indicating that this is faked, but this could also be an optical effect of the suit.

This is really amazing, very nice find! I love cutting edge technology stuff.
A star and flag!

Damn, thats awesome man. Imagine what kind of things you could do to help people. E.G. Someone sneezes on a public street, you say bless you. They turn around in awe!

But really, thats cool. It can save a lot of lives if used for recon!

Looks like something out of Metal Gear Solid 4.

Is there anyone who can translate any of this? It might go a long way to unraveling what we are seeing. It is propaganda, but it could be from either side. After all, Tokyo rose spoke English and knew the slang well enough to get into peoples' heads. Maybe this is the US or whomever showing the enemy what they are capable of...

I highly doubt the U.S. would actively show insurgents that they are capable of this sort of technology.

reply to post by depth om

it does release in 5 days (im almost giddy over that fact) maybe this is some kind of viral marketing ploy

I think it is. Kojima always comes up with cool pre launch ideas.

This video has been posted on ATS and discussed around here before. Nonetheless, here is the info i have (cross posted from a thread i have):

Towards Cloaking Visible Light: Three-dimensional Metamaterials For The Optical Wavelength Range

Last year researchers from Duke University stunned the world when they announced a cloaking device for the microwave range. This device made use of metamaterials that had a negative refractive index for electromagnetic radiation. The metamaterials were carefully designed split-ring resonators with a structure size much smaller than the wavelength. Only 10 stacked layers of metamaterials were necessary to achieve the desired invisibility effect.


Possible applications in the future include perfect lenses that beat the diffraction limit, and optical cloaking devices which provide some invisibility for macroscopic objects

Very interesting indeed.

This isn't all that is being done using nanoscale science. I will be posting more data that shows some of the cloaking technology developed to date.

Consider, for example, the "Paint the Night" program run in the late 90's, headed by the great, late Mike Muuss (he also wrote "Ping", which is on virtually every computer in the world).

Now, if you consider the ability to create 'clouds' of vapor (each with a defined surface tension), you can see how the PTN technology could possibly evolve. Further that with airborne nano's (which can 'congeal' due to EM properties). Voila!!!

Engineers Create 'Optical Cloaking' Design For Invisibility

The Purdue University engineers, following mathematical guidelines devised in 2006 by physicists in the United Kingdom, have created a theoretical design that uses an array of tiny needles radiating outward from a central spoke. The design, which resembles a round hairbrush, would bend light around the object being cloaked. Background objects would be visible but not the object surrounded by the cylindrical array of nano-needles, said Vladimir Shalaev, Purdue's Robert and Anne Burnett Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The design does, however, have a major limitation: It works only for any single wavelength, and not for the entire frequency range of the visible spectrum, Shalaev said.

...(snippity snip)....

Calculations indicate the device would make an object invisible in a wavelength of 632.8 nanometers, which corresponds to the color red. The same design, however, could be used to create a cloak for any other single wavelength in the visible spectrum, Shalaev said.

"How to create a design that works for all colors of visible light at the same time will be a big technical challenge, but we believe it's possible," he said. "It is clearly doable. In principle, this cloak could be arbitrarily large, as large as a person or an aircraft."

The construction of materials on this scale provides for some very unexpected results.

Yes, the above information indicates cloaking in only 1 narrow band of the spectrum. However, further design implementations (or combinations of layers, or combinations of approaches) make this a very exciting breakthrough.

These scientists clearly think it is doable. There will likely be further breakthroughs in mathematics and geometry that arise from this particular groups' work. It will be very exciting to see how it pans out for them.

Such a cloak could hide any object so well that observers would be totally unaware of its presence, according to the researchers. In principle, their invisibility cloak could be realized with exotic artificial composite materials called "metamaterials," they said.

"The cloak would act like you've opened up a hole in space," said David R. Smith, Augustine Scholar and professor of electrical and computer engineering at Duke's Pratt School. "All light or other electromagnetic waves are swept around the area, guided by the metamaterial to emerge on the other side as if they had passed through an empty volume of space."

Electromagnetic waves would flow around an object hidden inside the metamaterial cloak just as water in a river flows virtually undisturbed around a smooth rock, Smith said.

This speaks directly about the electromagnetic properties of photons. The experiment, on the whole, relies on the ability of photons to become something a little different (plasmons, which we will get into during another thread that is upcoming). This conversion allows for the light to travel seamlessly along a narrow layer along the top of the metallic surface.

Cloaking Device? Invisible Technology One Step Closer

Scientists have already created an 'invisibility cloak' made out of 'metamaterial' which can bend electromagnetic radiation such as visible light, radar or microwaves -- around a spherical space, making an object within this region appear invisible.

Until now, scientists could only make objects appear invisible from far away. Liverpool mathematician Dr Sébastien Guenneau, together with Dr Frédéric Zolla and Professors André Nicolet from the University of Marseille, have proven - using a specially designed computer model called GETDP - that objects can also be made to appear invisible from close range when light travels in waves rather than beams

They already have, huh? its old news? hmmm.....

Please note, this link refers to work done at Lawrence Livermore National Labs (LLNL). The first and third post i made deal with Duke University, and the second post deals with Purdue. This is quite the research field, if we have THIS much interest in it, right?

Clark School Researchers Develop Two-Dimensional Invisibility Cloak

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.


This manipulation causes the plasmon waves to appear to have moved in a straight line. In reality they have been guided around the cloak much as water in a stream flows around a rock, and released on the other side, concealing the cloak and the object inside from visible light. The invisibility that this phenomenon creates is not absolutely perfect because of energy loss in the gold film.

In this experiment there is a report of some level of energy loss. From what i understand, this is more an artifact of the material having a level of "toxicity" to it (imperfections in the manufacturing process) more than any real artifact of the plasmon propagation.

Molding the flow of light at deep sub wavelength scale

Abstract: The diffractive nature of light has limited optics and photonics to operate at scales much larger than the wavelength of light. The major challenge in scaling-down integrated photonics is how to mold the light flow below diffraction-limit in all three dimensions. A high index solid immersion lens can improve the spatial resolution by increasing the medium refractive index, but only to few times higher than in air. Photonic crystals can guide light in three dimensions, however, the guided beam width is around a wavelength. Surface plasmons has a potential to reach the sub-wavelength scales; nevertheless, it is confined in the two-dimensional interface between metals and dielectrics. Here, we present a new approach for molding the light flow at the deep sub-wavelength scale, using metamaterials with uniquely designed dispersion. We develop a design methodology for realizing sub-wavelength ray optics, and demonstrate lambda/10 width light beams flow through three-dimensional space.

The interesting about this piece is that it originates from LANL. And they got the jump on Duke by about a month (+ or -).

As Zorgon has mentioned multiple times, he has recieved indication that "the predator is alive and well at Los Alamos". It seems that we have, if not a smoking gun, at least a spent shell casing that helps support Zorgons assertion.

my take on the video is. The first tank was carrying (snake) and the other two guys. the tank was disabled and Snake and the two guys jumped out after it quit rolling and went to go find who the # blew up their tank. backup shows up snake runs back disables his cameo jumps on the tank and lays flat because he is unarmed and probably not bullet proof. he motions to the other guys and tells them where the bad guys are and they run off to take em out. Seems like maybe snake was being escorted in that tank.
Was the heat distorting the picture making him seem invisible? either way that suit was no uniform I ever saw it was skin tight it was clearly different from the guys with him. why would a guy be running around in tan spandex and no gun?

Who ever wears these suits must sweat like pigs, since all light is turned into heat. I'm sure they must have at least some sort of coolant devices. Or, I could have completely missed the boat on how the heat situation might work.

Im no expert but when all light gets absorbed you get black, no reflection, black absorbes all light wave lenghts, thats why it gets hottest (with the ALL ligth absorbing material they might be talking about a PERFECT black), if you have no light what do you get? night? pitch black?
you have to look at human senses as sensors, not magical somthings, our eyes ears etc. are just sensors, they pick up signals from around us and our brain paints the picture for us. if you get no signal, you can tell you get no signal, but if the signal is uninterrupted or faked (rerouted) in some way then you don't get a signal back at your sensors, and can't tell.
also can't have a "picture painting" suit since it could only work from one angle, you get to guys looking at you and you can't paint a picture for both.
and as far as "don't officialy have the technology yeat", i just say stealth bomber, 20 years? yeah...
they are almost there officially... anothter 10, 20 years?

another idea for where Snake came from. he could have been running around freely looking for targets for the tanks.

i also say i see no reason for this to be fake, and the "worn/inform your own guys of the tech" makes total sens to me, afterall "keep your friends close, keep your enemmys closer".
