Invisibility Research

Unread postAuthor: MaxuS the 2nd » Mon Aug 11, 2008 3:25 pm

Read the article, it's really quite interesting..

Talks of using metamaterials to 'bend light' around themselves, making them invisible to the naked eye.

I love how they have not ONCE thought of using this tech in an aircraft manufacturing application and adapting them to radar wavelengths.

Oh yeah, forgot about that. We likely already have one in service, anyway.

Classified equipment, and all that. :)

this is actually pretty old, the media is just now finding about this. I read a article in scientific american some time ago.
It said the material makes light flow around it, like water around a pebble.

You always seem to amaze me with your seemingly unintellegent replies.

Its a great scientific discovery and the ONLY thing you think of are naked chicks. Im sure if you try you could see a woman naked WITH he permission.

I cant completely say your reply is crap because i can think of one immature/un-scientific thing i would do; wrap baseballs, or rocks, in it and thorw it at people.

Wow, technology is becoming more and more advanced everyday. I can't wait 'till these "cloaks" hit the public market lmao (if they ever do). Would make unlawful acts much easier to perform/get away with :shock: but I would never do anything like that :wink:

Nothing like this will ever hit public markets. EVER. Too many potential uses in the commission of crimes. Although it's always nice to dream...
