She didn't create squat.  She ran a computer simulation.   Lookingup

After this line,

That reality is distant, but researchers are getting close.


it was hard for me to take another word in that article seriously.

I continue to weep for what passes for "scientific thought" these days.

The worst possible thing you could do with that technology? Put it on the market. Stalkers and other unsavory types are bad enough when they're visible. Supposing one should have the funds to buy an invisibility cloak (or just steal it)?

If they did make a way to be invisible, they would lock that thing in a vault & have around the clock security. Now i'm waiting for scientists to create a hoverboard.

I'm no technical wizard, but I think they can already make clear plastic boxes.   TongueOut

The point is that there are objects in the box.  Lookingup

Basically you can do the same thing with mirrors. They are essentially turning the surface of the  ox into a set of mirrors so that you see what is  ehind the box. This actually cool enough in its own right, but hardly invisibls.

If you look from two feet to the side, evearything is right there to see.  It is one thing to bend the light around to a single pointd, but another completely separate (and far more complicated) problem to do so for all or many points simultaneously.

A neat parlor trick, but way way far from invisibility. Sorry to be a stick in the mud.

Sounds like just the type of gizmo villains in a 40s movie serial might try and steal, well that and death rays...

Which you just know somebody somewhere is working on building right now, whether for sinister purposes or just to see if it can be done.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
