Can someone say Apple integrated sensing display?
Ooh, "Super Dust-man" must be chuffed to bits.
Nah, is rather cool, actually. Be good to see how it develops.
Pretty cool.. now I wonder if my crippling self-esteem issues are the right shape to be cloaked.
with a tiny bit more development, this could make one hell of an anti-theft device for ipods and Macs!
In other news, hundreds of iPod owners have reported their iPods missing.
I knew we'd beat the Romulans to it.
Yes, I know I'm a geeky Star Trek fan.
How do you know .
I said that it would be a good 'anti-theft' mechanism.
Yes, it would mean hundreds, sorry thousands would go missing, but hey they wouldnt be stolen!
(until battery power...depleted)
It would still need 2 things to be worked out... angles and fast adaption to a fast changing environment. I guess you'd still se artifacts due to the viewing angles and the speed of motion just like the Predator suit.
But nevertheless pretty cool stuff.
But surely if the Klingons can work it out, we can too.
I can go along with that! I'll even test beta.
Maybe, we stole it from the Romulans.
Wow. Thats pretty cool. I'm guessing that it wouldnt even need to be perfectly invisible. Maybe even 80% invisible (for lack of a better phrase) would be enough to make something hard to notice to the human eye. Kind of like how camouflage works. Breaks up the shape of something enough that your eye dosent recognize it. Either way, it seems at least in the realm of possibility that something like this could be perfected.
Star Trek, whats that??
God human beings are stupid.
One minute we build self-replicating robots. Then we make water run uphill. Then we set about building a cloaking device.
You sum the details.
Its true what they say about Sci-Fi, someday it will become reality, just as George melies proposed back in the early 20th centaury, with Voyage dans la lune, Le A trip to the Moon 1902, nearly 67 years later Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin would walk on the face of another world!
Other pioneers like Orville & Wilbur Wright showed us the way, and today airplanes are everywhere!
The application for this will be huge, and the sad part of the story is, the murdering military would love to have it, which side I really dont care both sides are corrupted!
"Tactical into practical" is nothing new. Many times militaries/big governments have the budgets and the "need" (necessity is the mother of invention after all) to pursue technologies/projects that just aren't commercially viable.
Sort of similar. Augmented Reality Cloak. A heck of a lot more stuff needed than a funky new lens system though
I wouldn't say the military is corrupt, per se. I would say that our elected officials have their own interests and agendas at heart. And they're using the military to further those goals. In the chain of command, you have no choice but to follow orders....
Oh my, I see perverts everywhere dreaming of the day they can walk into a girl's changeroom and.....um....."perv."
I see no one in this thread is a Ghost in The Shell fan. The use of therm-optic camoflauge in the series is used by a government sanctioned anti-terrorism unit called Public Security: Section Nine.
About a year ago WIRED had an article of a guy that developed clothing that did this. It worked, barely, but showed promise.
I can promise you that urban warfare in places like IRAQ wouldn't be a problem if this was made a reality.
This is a very promsiing technology, and only for military applications.
Maybe i can be Major Kusanagi
