BREAKING NEWS: Cloak of Invisibility a Reality!

Kip here with some breaking news!
You may have heard in recent years scientists have been developing a fabric with cameras woven into it. When a person wears the fabric the cameras record the images behind the individual and project it on the front of the cloaking fabric so that the person seems see-through. Kazutoshi Obana from the University of Tokyo is demonstrating the now infamous cloak. This method of invisibility is called optical camouflaged technology.

Just yesterday a team of scientists unveiled the next level of this technology. By using light-bending radar and microwave rays, it is possible to hide visible objects. The scientists successfully hid a copper cylinder from view with only a few shadows giving away the illusion. At this time the cloak is not perfect and can only cloak some objects.
