Researchers at the University of Texas in Austin have created a new, ultra-thin (0.15mm) Harry Potter-like invisibility cloak.
Until now most invisibility cloaks have been large cumbersome desk-mounted constructions that really stretch the definition of the word cloak. For the
most part, they’re more like proof of concepts for the invisibility material being tested rather than actual invisibility cloaks. The University of
Texas invisibility cloak however at just 166 micrometers thick really is a cloak in the Harry Potter sense of the word.
I wonder if this technology will ever see the light of day(No pun intended). Imagine the possibilities!
I know I want one for Xmas when/if there are perfected and made available to the general public(Not a chance)!
