I Choose...... Invisibility!

"Scientists in the US say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people invisible." (bbc)
"Researchers at the University of California in Berkeley have developed a material that can bend light around 3D objects making them "disappear".
The materials do not occur naturally but have been created on a nano scale, measured in billionths of a metre.
The team says the principles could one day be scaled up to make invisibility cloaks large enough to hide people." (bbc)
Soon you'll be able to do what you always wanted to: mow your lawn naked without your elderly neighbors pressing charges. (image from u.s. consumer product safety commission, which seems sort of ironic. do they really condone driving a lawn mower while invisible?)
