Michigan Tech Researchers Develop Cloaking Technology

It’s almost like something out of science fiction. The ability to take an object and make it invisible to the naked eye is one step closer to reality thanks to researchers at Michigan Tech.

They have developed a way use ordinary materials, like ceramics, to cloak objects from microwave-length electromagnetic waves. A series of layers work together to bend the microwaves around the object so that they continue on as if the object wasn’t even there.

It won’t make objects invisible to our eyes… yet.  But it’s believed that the technology to make that possible may be only about ten years away.
