WASHINGTON Top scientists in Israel are on the verge of a revolutionary breakthrough, creating a cloak that can render a person invisible.
In their real-world quest for invisibility, scientists at Ben-Gurion University have developed a device that scatters light away from an object so it cannot be detected, making the object invisible to the eye.
Physicists developed the method for concealing objects based on the study of metamaterials, which focuses on exploiting and controlling light by examining how it interacts with objects.
Those arrays of minuscule components bend, scatter, transmit or otherwise shape electromagnetic radiation in ways that no natural material can, according to Nature.com.
Bending electromagnetic radiation, such as light, around an object, gives the appearance that the object isnt there at all, but still can be located by infrared sensors or radar.

Nothing new here. The GOPe developed this for their spines decades ago.
They had something like this about 10 years ago.
It’s probably an incremental improvement on that.
Possible solution to the “Man in the Woman’s room problem”?
All I need to do is set a plate of food down, and my Bassett hound can be perfectly invisible to me until I hear the silverware clanking on the plate.
The news story says they still need to build a prototype, so seems not quite there yet.
People have forgotten that simple principle. It is a crying shame, too.
...cover a jet fighter in it —
Way better than a burka.
SOON THE ENTIRE IDF WILL HAVE THIS TECVNOLOHY/CAPABILITY,.
Try finding a Black Lab outside on a moonless night.
They are already tough enough to “photograph” in the sunshine on a sunny day.
Total photon traps.
You know what this means? No more speeding tickets!
I heard they put it down somewhere and are still looking for it.
Burglars will get it and walk right into your house/business behind you in broad daylight.
You`ll see all your stuff and cash go floating right out the door.
Cool. Now if we can just master time travel. Go back or forward, make yourself invisible, and fix what needs fixing.
Shoot just below the pair of floating eyes...
Not long ago, the biggest civilian market for an invisibility cloak would have been boys wanting to hang out in the girls locker room. That market has probably dried up now; because boys just have to declare that they’re actually girls, and waltz right in.
I was gonna ask if we could see it but then I remembered what it was.
Think how much groping Al Franken could do wearing one of those babies.
