My guess would be that's in the psychology department, though....

How about a course in "hoaxes and crackpottery"...?

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: this site is as funny as hell :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: (looked at the other "news")


these are real photos, but the wierd thing is - the photo you got on that mosnews site is courtesy of ©Tachi Laboratory, the University of Tokyo.... :biggrin:

howstuffworks got an explanation of this tech:
http://science.howstuffworks.com/invisibility-cloak3.htm

to sum it up - the "invisibility cloak" requires you to stand infront of a half-mirror, while a camera connected to a computer is behind you, so that the image of the background is projected on your cloak...

news sites are full of cr*p.

here's the original "invention" form 2003 http://projects.star.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/projects/MEDIA/xv/oc.html [Broken]
and some videos of it: http://www.thegreenhead.com/technology/2004/05/japanese-scientist-invents.php [Broken]

and to end this post i'd add: "Its true, the guy driving the floating car was wearing one".

I would have guessed an English department.

Of course, the article fails to notice the obvious...we can still see the guy in the picture! :rofl:
