Invisibility Cloak - new advances

    An interesting article about work being done by Zhang of Berkeley on 'metamaterials', which are materials capable of bending light, which is useful for bending light around objects to make them invisible. They are also being considered for fibre optic switching, since they can slow light down and improve on one of the internet's bottleneck's, signal switching.

    Enjoy. Comments welcome and appreciated.

    I am curious if anyone knows of any prototype invisibility suits. As I recall a team in Japan made one that was semi invisible but but entirely.
