RUBBER 'CLOAKING DEVICE' COULD MAKE buildings immune to earthquakes
- Pressurised rubber would 'divert' tremors from building
- Based on advances in invisibility
- Technique could protect reactors and skyscrapers

A 'cloaking device' could one day make skyscrapers 'invisible' - and immune - to earthquakes, researchers believe.

The technique would use pressurised rubber to direct the 'waves' of the earthquake around the building - and is based on research into cloaking devices that can make objects invisible.

The mathematicians at Manchester University say that the 'elastic waves' of earthquakes can be diverted 'round' an object in the same way as light waves in recent experiments.
