Optical Camouflage

Remember that really cool car James Bond had in 007: Die Another Die that could become invisible? Well that Sci-Fi fantasy may become a reality if Susumu Tachi has anything to do with it. Susumu Tachi is the inventor of an "invisibility" cloaking technology. Mr. Tachi has already showed of his new cloaking technology at an exhibition in San Francisco and stunned viewers.

"This technology can be used in all kinds of ways, but I wanted to create a vision of invisibility. My short-term goal would be, for example, to make a room that has no outside windows appear to have a view to the outside, then the wall would appear to be invisible." he said.

Yeah, I saw that on TV (Discovery Channel) a few weeks ago. Using a few imaging projections on certain material, the object or person simply blend in with the surrending in the eyes of others.

Now, people can run around naked without being seen or seen.

Interesting time, life is beautiful all of a sudden to many.
