Scientists can now make you invisible<br />
<br />
A way to vanish matter before your eyes has become a serious possibility thanks to theoretical research announced on Friday by British and American scientists.<br />
<br />
When built, the device theorised by the research could achieve a similar magical effect to that seen in Harry Potter movies, where the trainee wizard dons a special cape and becomes invisible.<br />
<br />
The research suggests a way to build a 'cloaking' or shielding device that renders whatever is placed inside it invisible. It would also nullify the effects of other electromagnetic radiation - meaning that objects sitting within the cloak would be impervious to radar detection.<br />
<br />
The scientists from Imperial College London and Duke University, USA, announced their findings in a paper published in Science Express.<br />
<br />
The researchers propose to build a special material that wraps around an object and which would 'grab' light heading towards it and make it flow smoothly around the object rather than strike it. To an observer the light would appear to have behaved as if there was nothing there.<br />
<br />
However, the special effects of the cloaking device would not be limited just to light rays, but would extend to all other field lines, including lines of force. This suggests other novel uses, for example in an interventional MRI scanner, where metallic instruments and other sensitive measuring equipment cannot be used due to the scanner's very strong magnetic fields. Instruments contained within such a cloaking device could however be used safely.<br />
<br />
Isn’t this (almost) amazing? With all this technologic advances, we will soon be able to do things we’ve only dreamt about (if we had imagination!)

I just woke up and turned on cnn or some stupid news show and they were talking about this. Pretty cool if you ask me! What could we do with our pc's now that we can mod some pretty crazy stuff with invisability!!! <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

hmmm i have my doubts, to have an object where forces arent acted upon it ( with my understanding of physics ) time would have to have been stopped.

Here's a website dedicated to all forms of Metamaterials...<br />
<a href="http://www.metamaterials.net/" target="_blank"><img src="http://146.48.75.78/meta/html/themes/DeepBlue/images/meta.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /></a><br />
<br />
There is so much info there.<br />
<br />
Enjoy,<br />

I think by force they meant scanners, other than radar, which would use laser, etc. Although a laser is basically just a concentrated beam of light, so bad example i suppose.
