Just thought id pop some links over!

Looks great so far. Two really cool items that have captivated the imagination for some while!

Cloaking
The material, called "Metaflex" may in future provide a way of manufacturing fabrics that manipulate light.

Metamaterials have already been developed that bend and channel light to render objects invisible at longer wavelengths.

Holograms
The 3D hologram you saw in 'Star Wars' may soon become a reality, thanks to a new breakthrough made by researchers at the University of Arizona.

The researchers have developed a holographic system that can transmit a series of 3D images in near-real-time, a precursor to holographic videoconferencing, that would eventually let us interact with lifelike images of friends living across the globe.

The system incorporates a novel, photorefractive polymer-one that can rapidly refresh holographic images and is scalable for production-coupled to a unique system for recording and transmitting 3D images of individuals and objects via Ethernet.
