If I Was Invisible?

If I Was Invisible?

Thats no more a question, the question is "When Will I Be Invisible?", yes one day you'll be able to pull a April fools joke with a sheet that makes you look like your not there.
Although more security camera methods will more likely be needed to track bad guys under the sheet that makes them look like nothings there.

I have this feeling those sheets are going to cost alot though.

If you can't see someone, they are invisible. You can't see me, so therefore, I must be invisible.

IT's late and I'm tired...I should probably come back when I'm not so tired. Not that I wouldn't say the same thing, but there is a chance I might say something worse.

Scientists have developed materials that can reverse the direction of visible light. Called meta-materials, scientists say the three-dimensional materials (3-D) could one day bend light to create an illusion of invisibility, a phenomenon they call negative refraction.

Uhhuh...Given the above DJoe would I cast a shadow?

There was something like this on the Discovery Military channel with a demonstration of a sniper wearing some kind of cloak to camouflage himself in a thicket of bushes.
When the soldier walked out of the bushes he was still in camouflage with his surroundings with just a hint of his silhouette visible.
Didn't notice a shadow though but wasn't looking for one as I was in awe with what I was seeing......or in this case not seeing.

If everyone was invisible there'd be no reason to worry about nudity...

I was hiding behind the message board, didn't you see me.

Good point, even if a person or peoples was naked out in the streets you wouldn't see them with that technology, sorry if that sounds like a creepy possibility.
