Latest Cloak Stories
Researchers in Germany have given themselves the ability to take an invisibility cloak into a classroom without any specialized equipment. The technology cannot yet obscure something as large as a human, but it can be used to make small objects “disappear”.
Attempts to build a Harry Potter-style cloak of invisibility have come and gone, but the inventors of The Rochester Cloak continue to hone their craft, and this week released new video footage of what they are calling the world’s first known 3D continuous multidirectional cloaking device.
Researchers from the University of Rochester in New York have developed an inexpensive new way to create a Harry Potter-esque invisibility cloak using ordinary lenses to obscure objects from sight at a variety of angles.
With the emergence of metamaterials and transformation optics in the past few years, invisibility has become a scientific possibility that has attracted sustainable research interest.
The first battery-powered cloaking device is being designed by researchers at the University of Texas. The use of an external source of power will greatly expand its bandwidth of operation.
The Chinese government is funding research projects in an attempt to create the world’s first invisibility cloak.
Limitations in current cloaking technology allow objects to be temporarily concealed at only narrow wavelengths of light or microwaves, while many newer designs actually make things more visible, experts at the University of Texas acknowledged on Monday.
