It’s true, well, sort of.
It figures that some folks over in Japan have developed an Optical Camouflage suit. It works by projecting a video image of the background behind the subject onto the suit’s reflective material. In essence, the subject appears to blend into the background, as if they weren’t there.
This could have all sorts of applications and I’m sure the military would give a few bucks to get their hands on this technology. Of course, there are some issues to be worked out, like how to have a video camera “floating” around the soldier in just the right place so the enemy doesn’t see them and…well, you get the point.
It’s certainly an interesting breakthrough.
