Popular Science News | Invisibility Cloak

Popular Science News | the idea of an invisibility cloak has been around for a long time but usually only in fiction. Early successes were in 2-dimensions so that the cloak’s background was projected on the front of the cloak and a view from the side dispelled the illusion. Not until now, that is.

A 3-D cloak has been developed that makes an entire object invisible, no matter what angle you view it from. Unfortunately if the shape of the object changes it becomes visible again. This is still useful for fixed shaped objects such as aeroplanes and tanks though. You didn’t think it would be put to good use did you, like making Pauline Read invisible to writ-bringers?
