How To Make Human-Sized Invisibility Cloaks

Thanks to a new printing method, we are now able to produce large sheets of metamaterials, a new class of materials that is designed to interact with light much differently than natural materials can. Metamaterials are made up of intricately patterned layers, often made of…you guessed it, metals.

The patterns must be on the same scale as the wavelength of the light they’re designed to interact with and must be of nano-size. Although researchers have been able to make invisibility sheets in the past, they were so small that it wasn’t a practical cloak, until now.

Charge Your Cellphone With An Artistic Lamp

A designer by the name of Samuel Li, from Albany, New York has invented a cool stacked Leaf lantern system in an effort to bring green technology into the home for practical uses. The lamp is half flashlight and half torch, a cell phone charger, and is 100% solar powered.

The lamp concept unfolds in segments around the center axis which exposes the internal solar panels to the sun, and works best when placed by a windows that receives a lot of light.

200MP H4D-200MS Camera: $45,000

A company called Hasselblad has just created a 200MP camera called the H4D-200MS. The camera is based on a 50MP sensor and composites six shots to create the effective resolution. Each photo takes about 30 seconds to take and uses a piezoelectric motor to create the image. Since 30 seconds is quite a long time to hold a smile and the lungs can only exhale so much, this camera is most ideal for product photography.

The camera shoots at modest sensitivities between ISO 50 and 800, and keeps the True Focus feature. The True Focus feature uses motion sensors to auto-adjust the focus after the camera is rotated for an off-center shot. Now here’s the kicker:
