HyperStealth Biotechnology Develops Quantum Stealth Material to Make Wearer Invisible

December 17, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The magical world of Harry Potter has fascinated its readers for more than a decade now. And perhaps, there hasn’t been any other object in the fantasy world that has been revered so much as the invisibility cloak in the Harry Potter series.

Scientists have been trying to replicate a material that could render the wearer invisible, and have been toying with different ideas of camouflage. Recently, a Canadian company has come out with claims of bettering camouflage technology.

HyperStealth Biotechnology says they have developed Quantum Stealth camouflage material, which has the ability to make the wearer invisible. This basically works by bending light waves around them, thus showing what is behind the wearer to be in-front of the wearer, and the material apparently doesn’t need any external power source.

The technology is a matter of great military interest, as the wearer can attack the enemy without being seen or detected in any manner. The enemy would be caught unawares and won’t know from whence the attack is being made.

Having a fighter adorned with the extraordinary material can confuse the enemy about its whereabouts. Also, the material would remove thermal signatures, so thermal detection too would be useless.

There are a couple of screenshots available, giving an idea of how the technology would work. But they apparently are not the real ones.

Guy Cramer, the CEO of HyperStealth Biotechnology, said that the pictures were mockups to show to the media, as they don’t want the original technology to be analyzed by someone.

“This is mock-up of our ‘Quantum Stealth’ (Light Bending) material with my assistant behind it. No cameras and no projectors are used.

These photos are to show the Media the concept, for security issues we can not show the actual technology. With the real material you would only see about 5% of the shadow on her and the ground as we’ve determined a 95% reduction of shadow in testing,” said the CEO.
