Show Orginal Story

Kirk or to disguise Harry Potter, but it is a significant start and could show the way to more sophisticated designs.

"We have built an artificial mirage that can hide something from would-be observers in any direction," said cloak designer David Schurig, a research associate in Duke University's electrical and computer engineering department.
