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.
