I'll Believe It When I Don't See It: 'Quantum Stealth' Harry Potter-like Invisibility Cloak Allegedly A Reality

Allegedly a Canadian company has developed a 'Quantum Stealth' invisibility cloak for the US and Canadian militaries that can hide whatever is behind it be bending light waves around it. The cloak is said to work so well and be so top secret that they can't release ACTUAL pictures of it in use, so they made these crappy Photoshop mockups. I don't know, something smells fishy. Get it? I forgot to refrigerate my leftover tuna noodle casserole last night. You think it's still safe to eat? I hope so (because it was breakfast).

Guy Cramer, CEO of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp, says he does not care that some observers remain sceptical as to his company's claims since 'the people that need to know that it works have seen it'.


'Two separate command groups within the U.S. Military and two separate Canadian Military groups as well as Federal Emergency Response Team (Counter Terrorism) have seen the actual material so they could verify that I was not just manipulating video or photo results,' Mr Cramer said.

'These groups now know that it works and does so without cameras, batteries, lights or mirrors...It is lightweight and quite inexpensive. Both the U.S. and Canadian military have confirmed that it also works against military IR scopes and Thermal Optics.'

I don't understand what the big deal is -- why can't we see a picture of it in action? You SAY it works, why can't we SEE it work? Or -- OR -- are these pictures ACTUAL pictures of it and the company is just CLAIMING they're mockups. That would be pretty crafty. Way too crafty for a company with such a shitty looking website.

Hit the jump for two more pictures of the LIES.

Thanks to outspire, who agrees that until somebody can use to get close enough to Lucius Malfoy to touch his hair during a Death Eater meeting, it doesn't exist.

    theyre called metamaterials and have been in the work at universities for years. can bed any type of EM wavelength including visable light. lots of applications especially in electronics... and of course, invisibility. not at all fishy if youve been following the science behind them for the past number of years.

  • PrometheanSky

    EVERYTHING I've read about metamaterial invisibility technology requires a rigid structure, and is very limited in the range of frequencies it can handle. This is great for radar invisibility, not so much for optics. For this to work, their TOP SECRET technology would have to be phenomenally different from anything that's been done before.

    In short, I call bullshit.

    so how it is making her invisible, but not the wall directly behind her? wall should be invisible too ;)

    Keep being skeptical and make more conspiracies, just like how most people dont think Canada has any special forces. It works in our favour quite nicely.

    Dude... That website is like "been untouched" since 1999.

  • AmselZephlyn

    I did a little research. HyperStealth Biotechnology Corporation is a real corporation, and they stand behind the claims on this technology. CNN did a video that references this too, and they were pretty convinced it was real.

    I'm still very skeptical, but I really want to see this. And I want one so bad hahaha. I just don't see how it could be possible without cameras either.

    Imagine if JFK had died of an undiagnosed, pre-existing heart condition instead. The world would be a very different place. It will be a very different place.

  • if you visit their website and look at the footnotes of their pictures, they clearly state that they are "Mock up concepts". Very interesting though.

  • TBozzly

    Thats a win for not reading the article propperly and deciding to comment. Its mentioned several times throughout!..........or is that a fail. Who knows with the hustle and bustle of the modern day internet flame wars.

  • Einstein

    Why does he show the face of his female assistant? THATS A SAFETY ISSUE!!!!!

  • the antagonist

    If there was only some way to hide it...

  • It still won't block the heat signature. >:3

  • if it has any sort of glass in it, it will block heat signature no problems.

  • luxlucetintenebris

    I see the parallel with the stealth materials they made for the aircraft, spent billions and made it invisible to radar so the Russians tracked them with sonar instead.

    ...and the ladies locker room will never be the same.

  • Rayn_A

    That's fine, I'll be in the mens.

  • the antagonist

    Women are ALWAYS welcome in the men's locker room. No cloak required.

  • Rayn_A

    Lies. I think if I popped in on a bunch of soaking wet, soapy, naked, athletic guys in a locker room shower they might be a little huffy about it. But what I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall.

  • Jace

    Nope, all guys think of their peeners like women do their babies. No matter how ugly they/it actually is we all think its the best looking one in the world.
