The Ultimate Weapon

 - Nov 7, 2007   Updated: May 9 2011
From the country who employed 007 and all his incredible gadgets comes a stunning technological feat--an invisible tank. We've heard about the work from Professor Sir John Pendry at Imperial College, London, right? He takes the background from behind an object and projects it on to the front of the object. Simple in theory yet amazing in reality.

Implications - The deceptive tank is made out of newly found materials that are designed to have what is called "extraordinary property" when it is exposed to certain beams of light. The light bends in a different direction than usual, making the tank seem like it is invisible, when in reality it is actually not.
