It can make objects disappear before your very eyes - but only if you have microwave vision.

 

I've just happened to read this article, check it out:

Any ideas how this discovery could be adopted for warfare?

I think I read somewhere about invisible coat made by (?) Japaneese or US (?). Nevermind, can't remember. The coat was covered with very small monitors IIRC. Efect was similar to seen in "Predator" movie (sic!). Anyone can correct me or knows something more about it? Is this the same technology as above?

The article I linked to is archived, but:

 

(It) cloak works by steering light around an object, making it appear as if it is not there. It is based on a new breed of "metamaterials", which can be tailored to have exotic electrical and magnetic properties not seen in nature. These materials are made up of complex arrays of metal washer-like shapes and wires that are smaller than the wavelength of microwave light and so interact with it.

 

In June, John Pendry, a theoretical physicist at Imperial College London, UK, and colleagues showed it was possible to build an invisibility cloak using such materials (New Scientist, 3 June, p 13). Now David Smith and his team at Duke University in ...

Cheers.
