Cloaking -- Fast Draw

Cloaking -- Fast Draw

What if you could hide something in plain sight? It could be possible using cloaking technologies. In this video, Josh Landis and Mitch Butler discuss metamaterials--a type of nanotechnology. These materials can theoretically make objects disappear from plain sight. This cloaking technology has a wide range of applications and could forever change our "view" of the world.
