HyperStealth, a Canadian company has come up with a new invention for our brave new world ! Uniforms for soldiers that can make them invisible. Wonder if the soldiers, while being invisible to the enemy, give them the middle finger and get away with it ... or will the monitors monitoring the soldiers have them court-martialed for being not politically correct?
Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility may not be just a fictional wizard’s garment anymore, according to a local camouflage expert.
Maple Ridge-based HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp. has claimed to have developed a fabric that creates an illusion of invisibility by bending light around a person or object.
The fabric is being called “Quantum Stealth.”
Guy Cramer, President and CEO of HyperStealth, said that there have been similar inventions over the years but his is the only one with a 360-degree view.
He said he isn’t able to discuss details or do demonstrations of Quantum Stealth for security reasons, but claims several military groups in Canada and the U.S. have expressed interest.
“We’ve also got a countermeasure for the device to be able to detect it,” said Cramer.
“It [costs] about $100 to $200 per soldier which is about what their uniforms are costing them right now.”.....
