The cloak of invisibility is coming to something near you.
Recent studies have found a way to prevent the visual identification of objects by covering them with sheets of gold.
Instead of turning base metals into gold, that precious metal is now being used to weave a cloak of invisibility.
Can you imagine actually being a fly on the wall in the areas in which you wish to snoop? In attending events to which you're uninvited? In being the backseat driver in a teenager's car? Ah, the possibilities are endless.
Imagine what will happen to the hordes of celebs and pols who make complete as*es of themselves because of their desire to be seen. How much gold will it require to render them invisible and leave the normals to their own deceits?
And just when some are crying for more transparency... How will you use your cloak?
