As a child, I always wanted to have super powers that made me invisible. Well it seems that scientists have actually succeeded at making an invisible cloak that can make objects like pins and paper clips disappear from sight. Not exactly a person, but they are on the right path! Check the details after the jump.
(DM) – It has been the Holy Grail of scientists for centuries.
Researchers yesterday announced they have built an ‘invisibility cloak’ that can hide everyday objects by splitting light.
The ‘cloak’, which is actually a lump of calcite crystal, can make objects like pins and paper clips disappear from sight.
Scientists have previously only been able to cloak microscopic objects, but a new study has taken a giant step forward by making items thousands of times bigger turn invisible.
