    The camouflage fabric 'that can make soldiers INVISIBLE': Company claims it has Pentagon backing for miracle material.
    Quantum Stealth camouflage bends the light around its wearer, its developer claims.
    Company behind it says it has demonstrated the technology to the U.S. and Canadian military.

    Its makers claim the material, which is in effect similar to the invisibility cloak worn by Harry Potter, can even fool night-vision goggles.

    Such tech will eventually become a reality. The only thing that's really debatable is when exactly we would see it deployed in a meaningful capacity.

    As for invisibility technology in general... In the grand scheme of things, it'll be just one more nugget in the history of trying to hide things from people. If you have a nack for highly persuasive political dissent you might have something to be worried about, but other than that it'll be just like every other form of stealth ever put into practice: it'll work real well...Until it doesn't. When they come up with something that can phase through solid matter or generate a viable energy shield...That's when we'll be talking about seriously game-changing stuff.
