Examiner.com, Mashable Scienceblog and grabnetworks.com feature a short video discussing the first invisibility cloak that "perfectly" obscures items and the research developed by Nathan Landy and David R. Smith, Duke researchers in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The video briefly covers other media reports on the topic from BBC News to Phys.Org.
The article associated with the video quotes Landy on how he incorporated metamaterials " 'Each quadrant of the cloak tended to have voids, or blind spots, at their intersections and corners with each other," Landy said. "After many calculations, we thought we could correct this situation by shifting each strip so that it met its mirror image at each interface.'”
