(April 1st Prank). A cloaking paint developed by Michigan Engineers sprays on clear and dries invisible. Once dry, it guides light around an object, causing it to become transparent. (NOTE: This technology only works one day each year on April 1.)


As nanotechnology blurs the line between science and science fiction, Christoph Ellison has developed a paint that guides rays of light around an object. Still in development, the distortions allow the outline of the object to be seen, preventing true invisibility.

About the Professor: Christoph Ellison is an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan College of Engineering (http://www.engin.umich.edu/). His research at the Center for Nano-optics includes nano-colloids, nano-gels, negative index materials and superlensing.
