Invisibility Cloak

Scientists and researches in recent times have been putting an extraneous amount of time  and effort into successfully achieving the impossible; Creating an invisibility cloak. The technology is very tricky to handle and incredibly difficult, it is like trying to create something in real life using a guide from a science fiction novel. One thing for certain is that many advances in this field have been made particularly with the U.S DAARPA branch, aligning a great deal of funds to research this technology. Several Universities around the world have been also taking part into this research but recently the people over at Cornell have actually created an invisibly cloak even though it only lasted for 110 nanoseconds. Called "Space Time Invisibly Cloak", what has been theoretically possible for a couple of years has been achieved for an instant, but this means the technology is there, just a matter of mastering it and extending for vast amounts of time. It requires researchers/scientists to play with space itself to hide an event from the average person and upon doing so an invisibility cloak is being created.

This graph from Paul Kinsler, Imperial College of London, demonstrates the main overview of how this works. Light continues in sort of a highway pattern and the invisibly cloak happens when that break separates its path thus making it invisible.

This is awesome! Great post

Shaw said...

I'd love to be invisible!

Erixsson said...

wow nice with invisibility. I like your blog, will follow you :)

R6blogs said...

There is no way they can achieve true invisibility! It would be awesome if they managed to make a true invisibility cloak

John said...

This would be neat!

Michael Arsenault said...

I think we would achieve something like camouflage they have in Crysis and in Halo, that would be cool.

Diego Sousa said...

whoa! i want one of those!

Nobel Sloth said...

Very fascinating concept and I really wonder if this would work.

AllWiredAdmin said...

Sweeeeeet. I wanna feel like Solid Snake haha.

Mikemage said...

Holy crap this is so awesome! AND it works differently than other types of invisibility cloaks! Sooooooo coooooool

happyhacker said...

Sweet. I wonder in what ways the governments will abuse this technology.

AIS said...

explanation is kind of vague... any other links to clarify?

Rachel Neilson said...

Oh my god if they can create one...they have to be careful about it.

my day in a sentence said...

That would be such a great invention!

Rlx said...

Sounds great,it wont be for home use though and will cost a fortune.

ToDecomposeDude said...

It's just a matter of time before they develop a personal cloaking device

Mikey said...

And I was just reading Harry Potter...

DIYgaming said...

Very cool tech, like MGS :)

ready to grow said...

cool stuff. i love reading about stuff like this. Thanks for posting

ZACK said...

I can imagine the millitary applications of this, great thing for snipers

Al3xaG said...

Amazing, I knew of some experiments trying to emulate the effect with cameras but was nothing close to the real thing

Destruhction said...

If this technology would be created I know it would be abused like crazy. imagine all the perverts getting ahold of this.

thomau5 said...

i love when science tries to figure out something in a movie that seems impossible

Hot New Music Today said...

This stuff blows my freakin' mind.

Batow said...

that's fucked up. imagine if they found out how that works?

Javier said...

Oh the possibilities...

Drumsticks said...

I could use some invisible time.

Gryt said...

So when can I buy my own invisibility cloak? hehe

Miki said...

i think if they used nanotechnology on a better scale we would be further on nowadays

DM said...

What's with the chicken?

dude this gadget is awesome, looks cool.....btw i added u, add me back!

BucEmHard said...

I have one. I use it to show random transients my penis before going back invisible. No one ever believes them anyway

Jblogger said...

technology definitely has come a long way in the past couple of decades

Alan said...

I can't wait to buy one.

Tristan M. said...

That crazy anyways keep it the blog, i followed!

Anonymouse said...

holy crap...i had no idea we could manipulate space time like that, even for a few nanosecs...awesome!

LegendsParody said...

Nice to know! I still feel we are a little slow on this :P

Benjy said...

oh damn trhis is some cool stuff

Bigshanks BSc said...

This is awesome news, its amazing what science is coming up with! star wars in no time!

Br0wn said...

Cool, i wanna be invisible :D

T Papar said...

coming up next: personal teleporter devices!

LoneIslander said...

One day.......one day.
Following.

Geojour said...

A cloak like this would increase shoplifting to unprecedented levels!

NoseFire said...

Can we have a picture or a video please :D ?

Philloz said...

It is really amazing what technology is doing. +Followed

SlogBlog11 said...

Soon I shall be Harry Potter

Internet Catch Of The Day said...

I want an invisibility cloak now!

poorfags said...

Wow that's interesting and exciting.

Fallow said...

Really next gen O: brilliant blog

Rockanium said...

My friend was talking about this in school. It's so interesting!

Juztyn said...

nice blog. very interesting!

Mike said...

whoa I wonder which deathly hallow they'll develop next. I'm pulling for the elder wand.

great post +followed

B-squared said...

that's crazy, never knew anyone was trying to create an invisibility type of item. very interesting.

WOODLOUSE said...

Can't wait!

Arrpii said...

Sounds to good to be true?
I will have to stick around to see wont I?
Followed!

James said...

Cool as fuck bro :3

epictacoman456 said...

That would be so awesome. Now there could be better slient kills

Yazure said...

damn i want.

Oh Sweat Bret said...

I heard about this a few months ago, it's amazing what they've been able to do in the last decade with technology. They're allegedly developing these sub-dermal nano chips that can charge your cellphone and mp3 player just by small muscle movements such as typing.

poorfags said...

It's quite mind blowing if it ever comes to fruition.

aLH3x said...

LOL! this would be great!!!!!!

aLH3x said...

+ follow ;)

Francis Caron said...

110 nanoseconds???

Chris said...

I want one.. NOW!

murder said...

Wouldn't you still be visible from Infrared/Thermal optics though?

Eddie Son said...

i could do with one myself

Diomar said...

nice post. .please try this one. .terrabyt thank you. . .

What this some strange stuff.
