I’ve written about this before, albeit a few year ago. But now scientists are much closer to a real working prototype that can cloak or hide 3 dimensional objects. In theory (i.e. on paper) it’s totally practical to implement, when you think about it. All you really need to accomplish is a real time image of what’s beyond the object and present it accordingly on the ‘cloaking material’. In the past, folks have used a projector like system, which captures what is beyond the object and displays it on its surface.
The complete details about the cloaking material, which uses a mixture of metal and circuit boards such as ceramic, Teflon and fiber composite, will be detailed in the journals of Nature and Science next week.
