Engineers Devise Invisibility Shield
Philip Ball

Electron effects could stop objects from scattering light.

"The idea of a cloak of invisibility that hides objects from view has long been confined to the more improbable reaches of science fiction. But electronic engineers have now come up with a way to make one."

"The concept could find uses in stealth technology and camouflage."
