Invisibility cloak material discovered

Scientists in Britain have taken a huge step towards the creation of an \’invisibility cloak\’, as seen in the Harry Potter films.

The scientists have made a light, flexible metamaterial – a material that channels and interupts the flow of light, that would be able to control light flow to render a wearer invisible. The material bounces the light off itself to acheive a specific result. \”Typically what you do is stack several layers of fishnet structures and this all together will give you a metamaterial,\” says Dr. Di Falco. Scientists around the world have hailed the discovery a \’huge step forward\’.  Professor Ortwin Hess reminds us that it \’isn\’t an invisibility cloak yet – but it\’s the right step forward\’.
