Canadian Invisibility Cloak Gets Pentagon Backing

Press2ToContinue (2424598) writes "We've seen many variations of invisibility cloaks recently, visible light and otherwise. However, this one is most like the Harry-Potter version, and is of enough interest to the Pentagon to receive their funding.

"Maple Ridge, B.C.-based Hyperstealth Biotechnology has developed "Quantum Stealth," a type of camouflage that bends light around the wearer or an object to create the illusion of invisibility.

President and CEO Guy Cramer likened the new technology to Harry Potter's invisibility cloak during a recent CNN appearance, and described its ability to easily and effectively hide a soldier in different environments."
