People tell me that my sarcasm and cynicism will get me into trouble some day. We'll see.

You can't see me

Cloaking devices render objects invisible using metamaterials:

By Sarah Yang, Media Relations 11 August 2008

Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have for the first time engineered 3-D materials that can reverse the natural direction of visible and near-infrared light, a development that could help form the basis for higher resolution optical imaging, nanocircuits for high-powered computers, and, to the delight of science-fiction and fantasy buffs, cloaking devices that could render objects invisible to the human eye.

Now if they could only cloak my "love handles."

I heard about this. It is a pretty awesome concept. Although I might also have heard that Chinese scientists have already found a way to defeat it.
