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.
