There are plenty of nerdy dreams we may never see come true in our lifetime. Teleportaion, time travel, even force fields may not happen during this century. But invisibility? That one is almost ready to beam into our reality.
American scientists are one step closer to figuring out the secret of see-through materials. The trick is developing a fabric that will not absorb light, not reflect it, but bend it. Want to know how that would work? Find out here.
Of course it's not the first attempt at invisibility technology. The University of Tokyo has their own approach that involves projectors and funny coats. Read about it here. Or just check out this video.
