BREAKING NEWS: Cloak of Invisibility a Reality!

Kip here with some breaking news!
You may have heard in recent years scientists have been developing a fabric with cameras woven into it. When a person wears the fabric the cameras record the images behind the individual and project it on the front of the cloaking fabric so that the person seems see-through. Kazutoshi Obana from the University of Tokyo is demonstrating the now infamous cloak. This method of invisibility is called optical camouflaged technology.

Just yesterday a team of scientists unveiled the next level of this technology. By using light-bending radar and microwave rays, it is possible to hide visible objects. The scientists successfully hid a copper cylinder from view with only a few shadows giving away the illusion. At this time the cloak is not perfect and can only cloak some objects.

The entire Associated Press article in the Japan Times is available here (or click the thumbnail!).
