This seemingly legitimate camouflage design company says it invented an invisibility cloak called Quantum Stealth that works by bending light "without cameras, batteries, lights or mirrors." http://www.hyperstealth.com/Quantum-Stealth/index.html
But the pictures on the website make no sense. They show a person holding the simulated material like a flat screen. If the material bends light around the person, shouldn't the material be wrapped around the person?
The company dismisses skeptics:
Do I care that people remain skeptical? Nope, the people that need to know that it works have seen it and verified it and their opinions are the only ones that matter.
Then why talk about it at all?
Those who have supposedly seen it didn't sound very thrilled about it. http://www.mapleridgenews.com/news/183440961.html
Maj. Doug MacNair, with Canadian Special Operations Forces Command, confirmed that Cramer made a presentation to special operations within the last few years. "We didn't pursue it further, at least not at this time anyway. It wasn't something we were interested in pursuing at the time. It doesn't mean we wouldn't in the future, necessarily. We're aware of the company, we have the information. But we don't have a contract in place at the time."
Does it work or not? If not, then why would they make this up? Just for free publicity?
