What’s the difference between a lawyer and a toilet? A toilet is only full of shit sometimes. I don’t mean to make fun of lawyers with that joke, as I would sincerely like to replace “lawyer” with the name “Guy Cramer,” the guy who is quoted as saying he invented the Harry Potter invisibility cloak, but I can’t actually tell if the guy is full of shit or not. Every ounce of my being thinks it to be so, but… wait, this isn’t a courtroom. Yeah, I’m pretty sure this guy is full of shit. This is one of those times I would absolutely love to be proven wrong, but I just wrote a story last month about the extreme complication involved in bending light, and thus creating “invisibility,” around very small objects. Cramer says he’s hiding humans.
Slap yourself in the face if you didn’t think this had something to do with the military, and then pat yourself on the back for not thinking it had anything to do with Canadian military. Guy Cramer is the CEO of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp., is something of a legend when it comes to camouflage design around the world. He says he has now gone the extra step up and created a fabric that will render soldiers completely invisible by bending light waves around them. Apparently he already has a proof of concept that members of the U.S. and Canadian military have seen and verified to be real, at least to Cramer himself. But nobody else can see the product in action, due to “security” issues.
