Scientists now have a way to method of cloaking something very small, making it effectively invisible. But what if scientists and engineers created a much larger version? What if we all had access to invisibility cloaks?
Metamaterials are a mind-bending class of matter. Broadly defined as manmade materials with unusual properties not found in nature, this category of materials is probably most famous for serving as the building blocks for a Harry Potter-style invisibility cloak. But so much more is possible.
Invisibility cloaks don’t even exist, yet scientists keep trying to ruin the fun. C’mon, guys. Wouldn’t it be more enjoyable to figure out all the awesome uses for one instead of trying to get us all caught?
