A professor at Tokyo University is developing see-through clothing - that is, onlookers would see right through the person to the other side, making him effectively invisible. Don't believe it? Here's a photo. Looks really frickin' cool. I imagine issues with the folds, buttons, color of fabric and other visual impediments to true invisibility would be (forgive the pun) ironed out in time. I like that the caption mentions other possible uses for the technology without making mention of what would probably be its biggest use, crime. :-)

Someone asked, and I also wonder, how does it know whether your arms are at your sides or raised? Not that you see much on the arms, but I'm curious.I agree, it's pretty neat. Those wild Japanese. I love them.

I don't know, the more I think about it, the more it seems like a hoax. But if it's real, it's cool.

Alien Mouse Syndrome

Over the weekend I finally got around to installing Windows Service Pack 2. I had seen two friends frag their systems with it (their computers wouldn't boot afterwards), so I put it off intending to find a time when I could back up all of my files, just in case the same happened to me. Go »
