Good Day World!
Have you ever read the novel, The Invisible Man?
The reason I ask is because what was once science fiction is now fact.
Did you know that physicists have figured out the optical parameters for a magic trick they characterize as a kind of "invisibility cloak?"
Invisibility cloaks have been getting a lot of press over the years.
That's not only because Harry Potter put his fictional cloak to such good use, but also because researchers have been using high-tech metamaterials to create structures capable of bending light around an object to keep it hidden.
Physics professor John Howell and graduate student Joseph Choi are co-authors of a paper about the "Rochester Cloak" that has been submitted to the journal Optics Express.
And there’s a lot of other invisible applications currently in use by our military. Like this one for instance. Here’s another one you should check out – invisibility camo uniforms for our soldiers!
Time for me to walk on down the road…
