Let's Get Invisible

Think of the possibilites this would be good for...

"Yes, you could actually make someone invisible as long as someone wears a cloak made of this material," said Patanjali Parimi, a Northeastern University physicist and design engineer at Chelton Microwave Corp. in Bolton, Mass. Parimi was not involved in the research.

Such a cloak does not exist, but early versions that could mask microwaves and other forms of electromagnetic radiation could be as close as 18 months away, Pendry said. He said the study was "an invitation to come and play with these new ideas."

"We will have a cloak after not too long," he said.

Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency supported the research, given the obvious military applications of such stealthy technology.

An invisibilty cloak? Hell, maybe Jay Mariotti can make his way to the White Sox clubhouse someday after all.

Or spend some quality time in a library.
