No, really. You won't see it to believe it. The UK Times recently reported that, using the principles developed by a British scientist, scientists across the pond in Duke University were able to create what is said to be the world's first "invisibility cloak".

Students of Hogwarts, Klingons and Romulans, members of MI-6 and FOXHOUND, whoever constructed Leasath's Glepnir sky fortress, acolytes of Nod, and teenagers everywhere who want to sneak out for some midnight fun, you may want to pay attention.

The "invisibility cloak" is made of "metamaterials" (artificial composites) and copper, and is designed to "warp", as they call it, electromagnetic radiation around it. Light waves are a form of electromagnetic radiation, by the way. Normally, an opaque object directly between a light source and your eye will block the light rays from reaching your eye...
