    Cool, but IIRC there's already been a lot of invisibility cloak prototypes, and all of them failed.

    Yes I know, but this one seems to have worked. The only proven ones before were 2D I think.

    There's a lot of these news things that are like "lol we did something from a movie in one experiment, quick everyone think that we're mad scientist gods!".

    ...what if you hide the invisibility cloak under an invisibility cloak? [​IMG]

    Still, interesting. I wonder what its uses would be though...

    [​IMG] I thought I posted in here...


    I said I'd noticed this yesterday, but didn't read in detail. Read the BBC article this time though.

    But where the hell did my post go? [​IMG]

    Cool, now I can sneak around in Hogwarts and... oh, wait.


    I'd love to see this public in the future. But, there is no chance in hell that it'll happen. Imagine all the security issues!

    I'm going out on a limb here, but I can only imagine that its uses would be....well.....making things invisible [​IMG]
