I have found a very interesting website that introduces some kind of invisible technoloy project they are working on. A professor at the University of Tokyo has created an optical camouflage system that makes anyone wearing a special reflective material seem to disappear. Here are some real-life videos that show how this technology works. You need to see it to believe it, man. It's unbelievable.

The TIME magazine has chosen "Invisible Technology" using
Retro-reflective Projection Technology (RPT) as one of the coolest
inventions made in the year 2003.

If you guys want to know more about it, go visit their offical website.

That is insane. I'm not totally disbelieving it, but the bones one looks particularly suspicious. Why was he standing so freaking still? I wanted him to open up his jaw or something...

Anyway, can you imagine walking around in that junk?! That would be so fun... And why hasn't the military taken over. Made it top secret. It would be their most valuable device, I would imagine.

...@_@ ....how cool

Sorry to spoil the show :P yes it is amazing but it is relatively simple.
A camera records what's behind and in front of the person and projects the images onto the jacket. It's still very cool though :) Of course it'll have a military application first :P

Homer: Pffft English. Who needs that? I'm never going to England.
Mr Largo: Lisa, do you find something funny about the word "tromboner"?

It would be quite unlikely this device be used to camouflage anything . True , the subject might be hidden , but the projection apparatus would still be in plain view. At best , you can use it to camouflague stationary objects , will using conventional camouflage to hide the projection apparatus .

Actually , everyone can do what these guys did . Just place a webcam behind you and a laptop screen in front of you , screen facing out . Thats what these guys are doing , in a crude sense .

I bet they used a "blue screen" trick - you replace all the blue color with another video with a computer. This is used for making weather forecast - the host walks in front of a blue wall and the map with clouds is put in afterwards.

OMG...liek I've bean banned cuz I'm n idiot. DUH ARMY GAME R0X0RZ!!1!!!!
