    Fascinating. I wonder if this would be spoiled and used in warfare too, like so many other wonderous developments?

    In the current study, the researchers used a technique called quasi conformal mapping (QCM) to conceal an object with a height of 300 nm and a width of 6 µm underneath a reflective “carpet cloak.”

    I challenge you to see an object that size without a microscope 😉

    More important, can two invisible people play chess with an invisible chess set? It sure would be funny to set up a visible chess set in a mall say, and have two invisible players playing. Moving the pieces by magic.....

    I think it's much more likely to be used by teenage boys to get into the girls' locker rooms.
