Scientists Develop New Invisibility Cloak Technology


www.redorbit.com

Two teams of scientists have developed a cloak that renders objects invisible to near-infrared light, BBC News reported.

The new technology, however, does not contain metals unlike previous such "cloaks" that resulted in imperfect cloaking because of losses of light.

Researchers say that since the approach can be scaled down further in size, the new technology is a major step towards a cloak that would work for visible light.

The cloak's design gives the illusion of a flattened surface by canceling out the distortion produced by the bulge of the object underneath. Therefore, light is bent around the object, like water around a rock.

The cloak changes the local density of the object it is covering.

In a few years our children or grandchildren will be playing with some really cool stuff.

very interesting...

I just wonder why a some of my threads have been closed because i came second to posting and this one never got any attention while a couple or so cropped out after mine...

I ''l take it as coincidence and not intended practice.

I may expect this post to be removed as irrelevant too...
