Invisibility Cloak

WASHINGTON – From Grimm's fairy tales to Harry Potter, the cloak of invisibility has played a major role in fiction. Now scientists have taken a small but important new step toward making it reality.

Researchers at Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology report they were able to cloak a tiny bump in a layer of gold, preventing its detection at nearly visible infrared frequencies.

Their cloaking device also worked in three dimensions, while previously developed cloaks worked in two dimensions, lead researcher Tolga Ergin said.

The cloak is a structure of crystals with air spaces in between, sort of like a woodpile, that bends light, hiding the bump in the gold later beneath, the researchers reported in Thursday's online edition of the journal Science.

In this case, the bump was tiny, a mere 0.00004 inch high and 0.0005 inch across, so that a magnifying lens was needed to see it.

Even though I'm sure this kinda technology wont be made available to the Public for years to come if ever... I have to wonder;

What would I do with an Invisibility Cloak :hmm:

well while I think about that....What would YOU do with one?


still nobody's bitch
spy on my daughter when she's not with me, like at day care or whatever. it's so precious to watch her get into playing when she doesn't know I'm around. I'd love to see how she interacts with her friends without me there.

at first i'd probably cause some mischief, by moving things around and making people think that they're going crazy, but after i've had some fun, i'd just disappear for a while, and see if anybody noticed

This would be a bad thing for anybody to have...especially myself.

I'd be up to no good, that's for sure.

<emo> Part of me thinks that I don't quite need an Invisibility Cloak - I can pass by without anyone noticing pretty well. (/emo>

I would spy on my younger brother. I would really like to know what crazy stuff he gets up to when he's out of the home...

play hide and seek with my kids :lol:
use it for bedroom play

I could use it before when I get to work late. So I'll just appear at my desk instead of people seeing me walk in late, announcing my late arrival.

Fight crime. Duh.

But seriously, I wouldn't use invisibility for anything bad. My conscience wouldn't allow it. I'm actually not sure what I'd use it for. Fighting crime would be pretty badass though.
