    Objects ustuilizing metamaterials may one day actually become invisibly cloaked. These metmaterials make light move around an object.
    Theoretically possible and projected use of this is about ten years though.

    Cant wait for my Aston Martin V12 fully loaded with optional mortar :coold:

    They've been playing with this for awhile on vehicles too. A camera system takes images from one side of a tank and broadcasts the images to the coating on the other side to give the illusion of invisibility. If you took it in the literal sense, it is invisibility because you don't see the vehicle, but what is visible on the other side.
