Try the same in the bath whilst tilting and looking at the glass of your wristwatch. Maybe I`m wrong but they appear to be changing the refraction index of the material. Although rather clever, it is actually just reflecting light from the viewer-side of the effect back to the viewer. Invisibility FAIL

What I gleaned from this short vid is it`s still in EARLY dev. stage. It only seems to work for a short duration and at a certain angle. If you could see it straight-on, they would have filmed it that way. Reminds me of looking at the shimmer effect coming off a long road on a hot day.

No, you guys aren`t paying attention. The "invisibility cloaks" sign is BEHIND the thing, and it is transparent when it`s inactive.

if you wanted to use it to hide yourself you`d be better off before it turned transparent. Cos, you know, everyone could see you when its see-through and you arent.

So... it turns transparent? That`s a long way from an invisibility cloak.

Wish they would have explained a little how it works... Is it something that can be portable? does it only work at certian angles or is it a full effect? *Sigh* Now I must research
