Texas Scientist’s Invisibility Cloak Prototype

The device created by Ali Aliev, a researcher at University of Texas Dallas, uses threadlike carbon nanotubes. When rapidly heated, they create a mirage effect similar in principle to a stretch of highway on a very hot day. Perfect for keeping a small object hidden:

    If I really wanted to play with someone’s head, I would tell the world that I’d invented a working invisibility device and then stage a bunch of b*s* theatre and CGI videoclips to demonstrate.  You know, airbrush out the wires or use powerful magnets or what not to manipulate objects in frame and then call it proof of an invisibility device.

    No, I wouldn’t convince anyone with two working brain cells.  But I wouldn’t have to.  They account for, what, less than 5% of the population, MAX.  And those aren’t the fellows who write the checks anyhow.

    Behold, the invisibility cloak. When we rapidly heat you, you become invisible.

    Eh? Really i don’t understand why people think that bending light is such a hard thing to do….Space and Gravity do it all the time o.o

    • Sammy Jenkis

      Space and gravity are not people, you troll.

      • Anon

        People certainly have their own space and their own gravity, and in some way people bend light even if minuscule.
