1. That exact idea has been talked about since at least the 50's...

2. I hate it when people liken everything to pop culture as if What's Now is the only thing that ever existed [ie, comparing a cloaking device -- standard sci-fi lore for decades, even pre-Star Trek TOS -- to Harry Potter's cloak. Or people who call every mp3 player an 'ipod'...or-- ok, rant mode off]

3. Ever heard of the Philadelphia Experiment?! ':-/ 8-O

"There would be no communication between the object that is cloaked and the outside world." Ah, a smart statement!

I'd like to read their full published article...

Check out this month's Scientific American for more on metamaterials and the behavior of light in materials with a negative index of refraction.

I was just reading about light that could go out one end of a fiber optic cable before entering it. It just shouldn't be able to work!

The best way to become invisible is to become an online magic store owner that tries to do the right thing and sell at retail. Then 'POOF' you're invisible.
