I'd heard that the military had been working on a "cloak of invisibility" type of armor for vehicles. A Japanese scientist has produced a working prototype of an "invisible cloak" (well, more like a jacket....) and demonstrated it recently.

It's not quite 'invisibility' (more like 'hard-to-see-ability') but still, it's rather interesting.

Neat:





Simon also wrote a page about cloaking technology:

Looks like it needs a little work.

aim for the glowing green guy!

I think it's a pretty good start. Remember the first computers when they came out? How do they compare with the super computers of today?

They'll perfect it.

I fear that little girl was exposed to too much radiation. Poor thing. Even the suit is see-through after that amount of exposure.

Speaking of see-through, I don't think the Victoria Secret or porn industries need this technology. It would make their job too easy.

I'm not sure about that pilot thing, either. If you were a Navy pilot coming in for a landing, would you like to watch your body nearly bounce off of the pavement of the deck? Let alone hit the deck on accident
?

Secondly, you know that governments want this technology so that they can have superspooks. Why ignore the biggest factors? Let's hope these guys don't walk on any busy streets.

I love Photoshop, it allows me to do some complex transparent images.

If this was true case dont you think they would keep this under wraps somewhere? Dont you think they would not experiment with it outside where the public is?
Also, what happened to the guy on bicycle? I guess the sleeves are not cloakable?

They can probably show it off all they want because they think we don't have the tech yet to build something like it. Either that, or they just came out with a new version of Photoshop

when i was in 11h grade, we had an assembly where a few people from the military came and showed us different things they had been working on. they talked about these "invisibility suits" that changed colors like a chamaeleon to blend into whatever environment they happened to be in. they said that they also could do this to planes, etc. on these suits were also different devices that gave other people a constant stream of information including the wearers heartbeat, body temperature, etc. so that the other people would know when they were in danger, hurt... it was very interesting. to this day im really not sure of why we had that assembly. i think it was only for jrotc. but it was weird..

The suit/coat was on the BBC website ages ago. They linked it in with Harry Potter if memory serves!

Before writing it off as a hoax, why don't you do some research:

Here is the University in Japan doing the work:
The University of Tokyo

A link to their page about the Cloaking technology:
Project Page

And a link to the BBC article which mentioned it:
The BBC

There you go, take your "Photoshop" claims back to the UFO forum, thats where most like to throw it about.......

You have voted stumason for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have used all of your votes for this month.


'Bout time someone came out and just said it. Ever since ATS's little photoshop "event" last year, everyone on the board is a pronounced photo shop expert.

Just a quickie bout the actual picture presented for those that dont know about it..

The actual picture is created using a series of mirrors, projectors, and cameras.




To utilitize this in the military units would be pretty hard, but not impossible considering today's research. I series of cameras, mirrors and projectors would have to be mounted outside a quite distance from the object they're wanting to reflect ONTO.

Just my opinions.

Thanks QuietSoul!


Think thats my first one ever, nice to see someone listens to me for a change

I too remember seeing pics and information about this years and years ago (I believe in was in Popular Science of Popular Mechanics)... I have no info about that posted diagram... But my memory is hazy having read about it so long ago but I believe it was something along the lines of a jacket of tons and tons of little pinpoint cameras and fiberoptics projected to the front the back of you and vice versa - surely that's simplified but sounds perfectly logical to me anyway... I remember the effect was different than the girl pictured, it was like an outline of shimmer when worn. Awesome stuff.

You're quite correct, The U.S. Military has had this technology (self contained, I might add) for many years. The problem with it is the weight of such camo outfits. The weight issue is getting better, but the technology is still not ready for individual use. There is however, another technology which shows great promise for making things (including individuals) relatively invisible. The newer technology employs plasmonic crystals to literally bend electromagnetic radiation around themselves and thus appear invisible from anything more than a short distance away.

I read that the milatary was experimenting with fiber optics to bend the light or view from one side to the other threw them i seen it a few years back on stealthing tec. with tanks and how they were trying to make them invisable

yeah...and thats real optical camoflauge...and not this fake japanese kind which holds zero importance.

I seen it too, It was on TLC like 7 years ago.They were showing future military technology and they showed a demonstration of the invisability suit(like the predator),I think they said it used fiber optics and tiny camera's.......7 years is a long time they probably perfected it or made a better suit by now.

That can only be used to "cloak" objects that are about the same size as the wavelength of the light used, in short less than one micrometer in size, NOT for objects several million times larger such as humans, tanks or airplanes.
