    Amazing! I would then no longer need to cast my disillusionment charm to render something/someone invisible. :lol:

    At the same time, it's sort of creepy to know that people could be present and observing you but you can't see because of their invisible cloaks. Stalkerish!

    This is one of those proud moments in history we should remember. This! A fantastic advancement. Of course, the military will be all over this... Solid Snake style.

    Seriously what if this one day really works to hide people? They could follow you home and sit in your house and watch you.

    Sounds like stalkers paradise.. Hopefully it's too expensive for the average person.

    Now that I think about it, doesn't the bad far outweigh the good?

    Pros:
    - Fun & Games
    - Defense

    Cons:
    - Rape
    - Murder
    - Burglary
    - War
    - Assault & Battery

    Just something to think about.

    Too bad modern science isn't held back by questions like that. I mean do you just expect them to cease development? I highly doubt it. We might end up seeing (or not seeing) invisible people within our lifetime.

    I would like it if they thought about the consequences before rushing to create such a dangerous thing. That, and created a counter that will visualize the hidden object/person under this material soon after of the creation of this. Either by a high tech camera or other means. Something to help the innocent folk out so they don't get taken advantage of... or worst. >.<;

    I'm not sure they really look at moral consequences when they do this. Or maybe they do but that doesn't hold much weight compared to the idea of achieving a scientific breakthrough. It's what they live for, I suppose.

    I'd hate to find out that these invisibility cloaks will be produced for humans' use, as vilky said they would be used for the worst and the lil people will suffer for it.

    Most likely it will be. I surely hope so. However, the ones who would probably get it for a big scam are so financially well off and can buy these things when commercialised.

    Am I the only one who can't actually see any potential good in this?
