A Real Invisibility Cloak – Mass Producers Dream!

By Ron Published on April 16th, 2007

Check out this article: A real invisibility cloak is in our grasp. If scientists figure this out think of all the tricks mass producers can do with their piles of inventory! They can hide them with their invisible cloak and then whip the cloak off when their machines break down. Of course the accountants will scream as all their “assets” disappear – literally. Anyhow, it’s a cool story!

    One thing I learned during my time at GM was that a downside of factory construction were the floor-to-ceiling curtains…. a perfect hiding place for inventory (in this case, scrap material that nobody wanted to deal with scrapping out properly). Stuff sat back there for almost a year, it was crazy.

    Think of what they will be able to do with an invisible cloak! Or would that be overprocessing since they do just fine hiding inventory with these curtains you speak of?

Have something to say?
