An invisibility cloak would pretty much be the coolest piece of wearable technology ever. You could sneak around undetected, listen in on conversations you probably shouldn’t be listening too, hide a bad hair day, you name it. They would also be handy for some super top secret missions, but a new use for invisibility cloaks would blow all those other ideas out of the water. A researcher from University of California Berkeley is proposing the idea of using invisibility cloaks for ships at sea. This “cloak” would have the capability of protecting the ship from rogue waves, minimizing damage and saving lives in the process. It may sound a bit far-fetched, but the technology may not be that far off.
