I really thought this was a cool break from the stuff going on right now. Just want to pass on a message from a dear friend who just passed:

"Let's keep our heads up and our hearts open, no matter what the next day, year, decade holds. YOU make your present that becomes your past that paves your future life. Stop worrying and enjoy it."

Now on to the article...

It might not work as well as Harry Potter's garment or the potions that transform other unseen heroes in books and on screen, but scientists have built an invisibility cloak that makes everyday objects vanish by bending light to fool the eye. The cloak – a lump of crystal rather than a flowing cape – can hide only small objects, such as pins and paperclips, but it is the first to work in the range of light visible to humans.

if this is used for cloaking military forces we just need to make all enemies to wear polarisation glasses to actually NOT see it.

I hate how they reference it to Harry Potter.

Major Kusanagi, the main character from Ghost in the Shell was already using this material with military application way before Harry Potter.

I mean.....even though there is probably an earlier reference to invisibility in Greek/Roman mythology.....but Ghost in the Shell is way cooler than Harry Potter

I think the King of Pop has been working on this for years.

Screw Harry Potter, I want active camo like Predator

All I need is some blades and some guns and we are good for hunting.
