Cloaking devices

by Redhats Q / May 3, 2006 10:42 AM PDT

The problem with lenses is that they need to be made of energy to be usefull.

If the energy allows not just light but also particles (thing earths Magnetic field) to be bent around the space occupied by the object we would be able to not only be invisible, but also impervious to impact by small particles.

That means you can go really fast.

(Thats the deflector dish --- right)???

Of course the you could measure the shift in the displaced images. (like how we find black holes which do this all the time) and then track the object that is invisible which kind of brings us back to a cloaking device not working if you know how it works. as you have something else to track.

But you need to be looking for it to see it.

Could it be that all the blach holes we thought we found were really just cloaked ships that went past our telescopes one night ????

I was reading theoriginal story after posting based on toms comments ane its not bending Light

What these guys are suggesting is vibrating the Material at a speed which resonates with the light but out of pahes with the wave frquency, This not reflecting any light!

Apart from what such a vibration would do to me (and how can I vibrate at the exact speed of a whole spectrum) issues

What if string theory proponants are right.

Yes you would dissapear and reappear in a whole new universe with a different vibratory rate

Its the Philidelphia Experimemt movie all over again.

This could be very scary stuff

They could accidentaly open a dimensional portal
