Engineers at Perdue University have an invisibility device in the works.

Still just a concept at this point, the plan would be to surround an object with a specially designed cone with metal needles sticking out of it. The needles would change the refractive properties of the cone in such a way that light would bend around it and make any stuff inside disappear.

Their earlier research will be published on Nature Photonics in April.

It’s magic! I gotta have a coat like this if it comes true.
