What is cooler than watching a Romulan warship cloak in your favourite episode of Star Trek? Why, being able to cloak yourself, of course!
Apparently we’re another step closer to achieving the ability to cloak objects. At this moment the technology is pretty damn hot (literally), but eventually when they get this down to pat I’d think it’s be pretty damn cool.
Of course, if we extrapolate – what the possibility of this actually being available in the hands of the masses is another question. Even if it were available, what would be the sort of legislation and governance that needs to be developed just to keep this thing from going out of control.
More likely when they perfected this technology, we’d never hear about it again. Military uses, I’d imagine.
