Breakthrough: A cloaking device that could conceal weapons from…

A group of electrical engineer working in Slovakia and Spain have prototyped a device that could become a cheap way to hide objects from magnetic fields. This is an interesting innovation because many security scanners and other devices use magnetic fields to detect hidden objects, whether a concealed weapon or a… » 3/23/12 11:53am 3/23/12 11:53am

Breakthrough cloaking device creates a hole in light and time

Forgetting that cloak of invisibility — how about a device that hides you in the very fabric of time? New research published in Nature reveals that scientists have successfully hidden an object in both space and time — even if for only for 40 picoseconds. Rather than bending light around the object, their technique… » 1/05/12 11:02am 1/05/12 11:02am
