'Cloak of Illusion' Tech Could Disguise Objects


dsc.discovery.com

A cloak of illusion, or a material that disguises one object as another, is being developed by scientists in Hong Kong.

"The metamaterial can turn the appearance of one object into that of another," said CT Chan, a scientist at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and coauthor of a paper that recently appeared in the journal Physical Review Letters.

"For example, it can make an apple look like an orange," said Chan.

Unlike most materials, which derive their properties from their chemical makeup, a metamaterial gets its special properties from its physical composition

"Imagine if you confused a F-22 for a Boeing 747 on the radar screen," sand Fang. "It [would be] hard to take quick action."


Yeh and then cloak a CIA agent as an Middle Eastern child that can assassinate some other president the US always wanted to kill.

This technology will probably be available only to the military, and that means war will be a lot more interesting

I'm not sure about your particular take on it, but metamaterials are really making headway. How long will it be before metamaterials are used to absorb light energy or ambient radiation energy to power small systems? Metamaterials can be used for far more than invisibility or disguise cloaks.

OH YAH DID I MENTION? THIS MIGHT PROVE THE 9/11 HOLOGRAM THEORY.



Please be careful how you throw that word around. Pretty soon it won't mean anything. Even if this technology was released to consumers tomorrow, it certainly wouldn't PROVE anything. If you want anyone to take you seriously, treat things like PROOF with a little more respect, please.

Indeed. Star.

This might be a mere avenue to some kind of future proof, but it certainly isn't proof.

And, just a piece of advice, the No-Planes-Hit-The-Towers scenario seems more like mis-information meant to discredit the whole 9/11 truth movement, and it will if too many people start to believe it. It's common practice to inject ridiculous information into benevolent theories to discredit them. Simply a word of caution.

EDIT: Still, star and flag for the thread as ChemBreather is right, I soooo want to hear "Cloak Engaged" someday.

Lol is this all they're letting us know they can do, on this sort of subject (invisibility). Tip of the iceberg most likely...

Science fact has a way of catching up with science fiction, like Jules Verne's submarine, the moon landing, and now video games like C&C Red alert 3 have a vehicle called the "sudden transport" with these types of capabilities:

cnc.wikia.com...(RA_Universe)


Though unarmed and lightly armored, the Sudden Transport makes up for these flaws with a unique stealth camouflage system that allows it to mimic the appearance of enemy vehicles. With this device, the Sudden Transport is able to slip through enemy lines and sneak their way past defenses, allowing them to deploy Imperial troops at vulnerable enemy positions in the rear.


Military commanders have to be drooling for the day they can get their hand on this technology for real (unless they already have it secretly and just haven't told the public yet).
