The Cloak of invisibility is getting real

A team of researchers from the University of Rochester revealed a successful cloaking device which make the front object visible.

This is “the first device that we know of that can do three-dimensional, continuously multidirectional cloaking, which works for transmitting rays in the visible spectrum.” It’s imperfection? “This cloak bends light and sends it through the center of the device, so the on-axis region cannot be blocked or cloaked.”

Guterstam predicts that, for the immediate future, the invisibility cloaks of fiction will remain fictional. “Many fundamental challenges remain before we can cloak macroscopic objects,” he told Fusion.

Though the experiment yields initial results, the application of it in the real life looks uncertain.
