It’s no longer just a story worthy of Harry Potter, invisibility cloaks are now a reality!!!
German scientists have created a three-dimensional “invisibility cloak” that can hide objects by bending light waves! No kidding!! By using this class of materials called metamaterials, they were able to — in non meta-physic language — hide a small object underneath a carpet and then make both the bump and the carpet invisible! Isn’t that cool?! “This is very exciting, because mankind has always thought about being invisible or having invisibility cloaks. This is the first proof of principle. It shows that the technique works.”, added the scientists.
Don’t get too excited though! It will be LIGHT years (hihi) before you will find these magical cloaks on the market…
In the meantime, why not speculate?! If you were to have an invisibility cloak, where would be the first place you would go?! Mmmmm it’s a tough one… I’d go into the Habs locker room!!! hahaha Did I say that outloud?! hihi WHAT WOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD DO WITH AN INVISIBILITY CLOAK?!?!
