• Scientists develop invisibility cloaking metamaterial


  • We’ve all dreamed of turning invisible at some point of time. Now, Duke University scientists David Smith and Nathan Landy have come up with the near-perfect way to go invisible! Their concept pretty much resembles the invisibility cloak from the Harry Potter series, sans magic. The scientists have come up with a centimeter-scale cylinder that is totally invisible to microwave using a diamond-shaped cloaking device that passes around the edges of the cloaking metamaterial, keeping away reflections.

    The device might not be the best way to sneak out of the house without being seen. It will however help in advancements in radar, communications or microwave technologies and is indeed a modern day marvel!
