Kind of reminds me of the alien's camo in "Predator".

Developed by a Canadian company...

Ha, I checked to see if it was in the topic list. :D

Are there points for being first?

This looks like crazy stuff. I wonder if it could be applied to military vehicles and aircraft. It's pretty sci-fi.

Yeah, the claims are pretty pie-in the sky don't you think? What kind of material has physical properties that could be applied to a supesonic aircraft that flies at 50,000 ft and the hull of a submarine that cruises 400m below the surface and can also fold up neatly to fit an airman's survival pack?

Interesting...

Guy Cramer, CEO of the company, created the technology months ago, but told CNN he finally released images of it to the public in order to get an opportunity to show it to military officials.

Wouldn't the military prefer that the whole world does not know about it? Now that it's public knowledge it's not much of a secret anymore :?:

Heard about this a couple years ago on the grapevine. Glad it's going somewhere. I'm not at all suprised it went public first. It's a private company in a start-up venture trying to fill a niche that until now hasn't existed.

Most incredibly, he imagines a group of Canadian battle tanks decked out with Quantum Stealth camouflage that could engage an enemy unit with no signs of their location except the sound of their engines and guns.


Awesome idea if it works that well!

Found out what it was. Look up "Metamaterials." Up until recently they were only theorised. While the material applied to an aicraft wouldn't be the same material in a camoflage blanket a soldier would use, the concepts and theories behind the applications is the same. It's just a matter of finding an appropriate material and structure for each application.

Also, the pictures don't accurately portray the effect of the material. In order for this to work, whatever object you are trying to hide would need to be fully enveloped in the material. What it does is take the light shined on it from one direction, and effectively "moves" it to the opposite side. Same concept as fiber-optics, but instead of 1 dimension of application, it's 3 dimensional.

Potential issues - Unless it is made porous there would be no way to see in or out of it, but the more porous it is, the less effective it is, because there is less surface area to both take light in, and let light out.
