Invisibility


The print is an appropriate piece from the Etsy Artist LadyMonica,"Le Magicien Invisible - Art Poster 8 X 10 Collage See her work at http://LadyMonica.etsy.com

Well Harry Potter fans,get ready.Some serious research is going on about that cloak of yours..Some say it is aimed toward warfare but that is not actually discussed.

Interesting , the copy I had from the article disappeared...any way several successful attempts have been made in the past few years to actually cause small and medium size objects to disappear.Now researchers at Duke University are reporting gains in the area.They expect to even soon be able to make large 3D objects to hide with invisibility..(some as large as tanks?) Here is the link to the news article:

Yikes! Small, inanimate objects going invisible, I think I can handle... but moving onto large things, and then probably animals and people... I dont' really like that idea so much!

Unless, of course, it is Harry Potter. I'd love an invisibility cloak, myself!
