Inventor Claims He Can Make Things Invisible
from the it's-the-new-black dept
It seems like “invisible” is the “new black”. Researchers all around the world are working on ways to make things invisible. We had the Japanese scientist who had worked out a system to make things invisible by carefully placing cameras that project over a solid. Now, here’s another researcher that’s taking a similar concept even further, saying he can
camouflage almost anything by covering it with tiny reflective lenses that can “receive, transmit, and reflect” light from whatever surrounds the object. The guy working on it says it can definitley be done, and even believes that the US military is probably already using technology like this. The guy comes across in the article as a bit of a crackpot inventor, so I have no idea how valid his ideas are.
