    Harry Potter fans take note: scientists have finally come up with a workable design for an invisibility cloak.

    Physicists figured out the complex mathematical equations for making objects invisible by bending light around them last year.

    A group of engineers at Purdue University in Indiana have now used those calculations to design a relatively simple device that ought to be able to - one day soon - make objects as big as an airplane simply disappear.

    I've read about this stuff over the years in new scientist.
    sounds cool, but problem is, how do they prove it?
    "Do you see an airplane in front of you?"
    "no."
    "IT WORKS!!!! :w00t: "
