I thought it was already done, with a person-sized clothing. It used some cameras and some other things, but it made a person look transparent.

Wonderfull, nowi wonder what objects I own that are 10^-6 meters in length... I suppose I could hide a couple of skin cells.

Hmmm... interesting... very interesting...
Possible applications for that kind of technology... hmmm...
But, if it fell into the wrong hands...
What do you mean 'if'?
Of course it'll fall into the wrong hands. Haven't video games taught you anything about cool technology?

I think I read something about this awhile ago, except I think it was digital and captured a picture of the image behind showing it on the front and visa versa.
Yeah and like you say its been around for quite a while. Maybe they used eco friendly materials and thus its a new device here?

What would I do? ...
I think every male on the planet knows what I'd do.

I didn't know about the laser etching/engraving/whatever method, and this looks to use it in sort of a holographic way, interesting.

I read this on the Beeb today. Humanity continues to pleasantly surprise me.
Ditto, McFurb. I just hope I live long enough to see something like this.
Hmm. If I'm in my 70's and they develop an invisibilty cloak, I'll steal the prototype and become a superhero..."Dirty Old Man Man!"

I heard about this before. They're called metamaterials and they are invisible to certain wavelengths. Some chinese lab made one completely invisible to microwaves last year.

All I can say is, porn would get ALOT better. And it's already pretty good! Bonus!

I thought the military was trying to develop one of these for covert ops since the late 80s?

I could finally take walks at night without fear of rape or assault!
Though I'd have to be extra careful when crossing streets...

Ah, Gabriel, you never cease to make me laugh with your topical humour.
Tankya mister. I do try.

You guys have it all wrong. I would freak the hell out of people by making a whole bench invisible. Then just lie on it. all day long.

A team of scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany have published a paper describing how they were able to fabricate a small piece of matter which rendered objects beneath it invisible. Fabrication techniques still limit the size of the object that they can hide but the team at least proved that such an item is feasible.
HA! These fools are no match for my intellectual prowess! I have already created a "piece of matter" that renders me invisible to the untrained eye! And it just so happens that my solution is derived from one of history's most popular video games!

MY PERSONAL INVISIBILITY SHIELD!

Youuuu caannnn't seeee meeeee! :D
