It's just a gimmick. people will quickly get bored and go back to 2-D invisibility cloaks.

Fischer makes the tiny cloak -- less than half the cross-section of a human-hair

Nice, an invisible microscopic object...

You know, this is really cool news, but articles like this need to have less misleading headlines (I mean TFA's headline). It's just setting the reader up to be unimpressed.

Cold Confetti of Paradise: Somebody killed a Mriswith? Thought only war wizards could do that!


I know there are plenty of people on Fark who've read it but I don't think I've ever actually seen anyone make a sword of truth reference.

Can think of a good use for an invisibility cloak.

Yeah, I was thinking Harry's feet might stick out of the bottom of that.

When ever I think invisibility cloaks or fabric, i always go back to this Batman episode.

Especially his car that he wrapped in the stuff, and how hard it would be to drive an invisible car on a busy freeway.

Goddammit, I thought we agreed that only Season One of that show ever happened!

/Nothing is obscure on Fark.

My only question is, will I be able to wander into the high school girls' locker room to "test" the cloak?

Dibs.

Oh, I knew the show wasn't obscure here. I just wasn't sure if anyone would remember the episode where Piccolo tried to sneak into the women's shower using the invisibility harness from a SCARAB.

Yes, I watched the other seasons when the show tried too hard to be Star Trek.
