INVISIBILITY CLOAKS are REAL!
At least, they should be very soon.

Thanks to 3D printers (Eff- those things are changing the world as we know it, all hail!), soon you can perhaps wear an Invisibility Cloak- or my name is Harry Potter.

What would you do with one?

I would use one when I go jogging or walking alone, as an added safety measure.

Of course I imagine there'd be restrictions- what can be used for good could be used for bad (anyone that wants to rob a bank).

Still, this is cool! Who'd have thought this far-fetched concept could be real?


I remember reading this somewhere a couple months ago, so maybe it is somewhere here on TTA I saw it, but couldn't find? Here is an older same-same article.)

Oh, boy. Well, I would definitely NOT use an invisibility cloak to spy on nekkid men in the shower or locker rooms or during their most private moments with themselves, no siree. I'm a good girl. Angel

Eh, not quite yet. But possibly 30 or so years in the future.

You guys are lame. All you would do is spy on people? I'll just run around and be an obnoxious poltergeistBig Grin

RE: INVISIBILITY CLOAKS are REAL!
The article is misleading. The invisibility cloak pictured uses completely different technology than the device printed with the 3D printer. The one pictured uses camera and projectors. The camera takes a picture of the scene behind the person and a projector in front of the person projects that image onto the cloak the person is wearing.

What got printed with the 3D printer is a device which bends microwaves around the object placed at the center so it doesn't create a shadow. It only works in the microwave portion of the spectrum...not the visible light portion.
