I'm invisible... You've never seen me, have you? Or, have you?!?!?! Smile

Amazing reading!

I like this part:

there will still be one big limitation: Anyone inside the invisibility cloak would not be able to see out, for the same reason that an outside observer could not see in. “If I can’t see you, you can’t see me. It would be like being inside a silvery bubble,” explains Pendry. Would-be invisible men will have to figure out a way to cut out a visor, or perhaps decloak before accidentally walking into a wall.

(Oops!)
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I think that this technology is already in use at the Café. It would answer some nagging questions...

That could be easily solved with a micro-camera outside the invisibility cloak and a monitor inside the cloak.

I placed my invisible cloak on the bed--now I can't find it!

I'm already working on some ideas for magic applications of metamaterials.

Might be useful for hiding large objects in space. Not so useful for hiding normal sized things from visible light so far.

Anyone wearing a cloak of invisibility had best put on infra-red goggles before they disappear.

Gee, this product will really screw up Mac King
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!
