Researchers at the University of Rochester have come up with a remarkable cloaking device which, besides being so cool, could have a wide range of potential applications, including allowing doctors to see through their hands while operating, or aiding drivers to see through blind spots.

“This is the first device that we know of that can do three-dimensional, continuously multidirectional cloaking, which works for transmitting rays in the visible spectrum,” said Choi, a PhD student at Rochester’s Institute of Optics.

Watch the video below to see all of it for yourself. And here is the good news: if you are a DIY freak, you can actually build this yourself at home and it costs almost nothing! So if you are, or just would like to find out more about how this works in detail, check here (a more simple explanation can be found here).
