BREAKING: SCIENTISTS INVENT "STAR TREK" CLOAKING DEVICE
Simply put one lens on the front of ship and one on the back and you have a cloaking device.

Invisibility cloaks are the result of physicists' newfound ability to distort electromagnetic fields in extreme ways. The idea is steer light around a volume of space so that anything inside this region is essentially invisible.

The effect has generated huge interest. The first invisibility cloaks worked only at microwave frequencies but in only a few years, physicists have found ways to create cloaks that work for visible light, for sound and for ocean waves. They've even designed illusion cloaks that can make one object look like another.

Today, Moti Fridman and buddies, at Cornell University in Ithaca, go a step further. These guys have designed and built a cloak that hides events in time.

Time cloaking is possible because of a kind of duality between space and time in electromagnetic theory. In particular, the diffraction of a beam of light in space is mathematically equivalent to the temporal propagation of light through a dispersive medium. In other words, diffraction and dispersion are symmetric in spacetime.

another invention,researchers have even found a mind-boggling application. Their idea is to create the illusion that a wall has a hole in it, and then use the hole to look through the wall.
That's not quite as bonkers as it sounds. The wall has to be pretty thin, and what the new device does is allow light to tunnel through the wall in a way that would not ordinarily be possible.

"illusion cloaks"???

So that's how those "ghost" cities showed up in China?

Talk about Prison Planet... everyone is getting experimented on.

Cloaking capabilities were around years ago. Yawn.

yeah sure, like the robot that runs 30 mph (but needs an energy source big as a bathroom)

oh wow....

take a look at what the US military already HAS IN ITS ARSENAL FOR YEARS!



dumbfuck, they fly to the moon for fukin YEARS and you know shit, all you know is that ohhhh you so fascinated by maybe someone gets anything cloaked, oh superb.

What exactly in Star Trek triggered real fascinating devices already functional? Mobile phone, photon teletransport (how far? one meter? more now?)....
