Oh this is SO last century. They should come to my house if they want to study invisible people. We've had them here for 34 years....spilling things, leaving socks on the floor, eating the last of the ice cream, running the dryer with the filter crammed full of lint, using metal utensils on non-stick pans, putting open packages of cheese in the refrigerator to dry out, leaving 2 teaspoons of gas in the car so I can't even make it to a gas station, wearing a sister's clothes without asking, putting wet towels in the hamper...you name it, our invisible person has done it.
INVISIBILITY devices, long the realm of science fiction and fantasy, have moved closer after scientists engineered a material that can bend visible light around objects.
The breakthrough could lead to systems for rendering anything from people to large objects, such as tanks and ships, invisible to the eye – although this is still years off.
So if they want to know how it's done, they should just come and camp out here for a few weeks, hiding in the pantry to watch the chocolate chips disappear out of the new bag I just bought from Sam's. Now THAT will be a breakthrough.
