    At the recent New York International Auto Show, Land Rover displayed this concept for an invisible hood that allows you to view the ground beneath your engine. That way you can actually see what you're running over WHILE YOU'RE RUNNING OVER IT. The future, ladies and gentleme... / Continue →

    This is the 'mirror fence' designed and installed by artist Alyson Shotz. It's a picket fence made with mirrored surfaces to blend into the environment and become less obtrusive. Me? I prefer obtrusive fences. My house is surrounded by a 14-foot electrified security fence t... / Continue →

    This is artist Jimmy Kuehnle's invisible bike. It's made out of clear Lexan panels and, I don't know about you, but I can still see it. Jimmy's outfit: also cannot be unseen. I actually reached out to invisible jet owner Wonder Woman to see what she thought of Jimmy's bike, ... / Continue →

    Mercedes Benz decked out one of their minivans with an LED screen on one side and a camera on the other that can stream it's feed to the screen to make the vehicle look invisible. It was done to advertise the company's new F-CELL hydrogen fuel cells, which generate zero emissi... / Continue →

    Moto Undone (just like the top few buttons of my blouse!) is a conceptual electric motorcycle designed by Joey Ruiter. When seen from a blurry ant's-eye-view, the bike almost seems to disappear. When seen clearly at normal height, it looks like a dude humping a mirror because... / Continue →

    Take a gander at the picture -- any clue what you're looking at? Me neither, I thought it was the original Fallout beta or something. "I see an alligator eating a child." Okaaaaaaay, now I see a psychiatric evaluation. But apparently there's a tank in there somewhere. The... / Continue →

    According to a couple physicists who should lay off the ganja and drink more beer and buy me a round while they're at it, a space-time invisibility cloak could be developed that would allow a user to hide entire events from the eyes and cameras of onlookers. Haha -- I've batti... / Continue →

    The invisible chair isn't actually invisible, you can still see the metal armature and, more than likely, the polyurethane film that you actually sit on. Still, I would get one and put a potted cactus underneath it for shock value. Then, after my friends (LOL!) have come over... / Continue →

    Yes, that really is me with my invisibility helmet on. I know, I know, I probably should have made a whole suit. Anyway, UK scientists claim they're one step closer to an invisibility cloak thanks to a new flexible metamaterial. Pfft -- I'll believe it when I don't see it. ... / Continue →

    Because sharks aren't scary enough, apparently some of them can appear invisible while underwater. Awesome, I'm never showering again. Not scared yet? Well, one of the invisible shark species is nicknamed the phantom hunter of the fjords. The real name of the phantom hunt... / Continue →

    That's right folks, scientists have successfully hovered mice using nothing but magnetic fields. You read correctly: no black magic this time! (I'm still skeptical) Scientists working on behalf of NASA built a device to simulate variable levels of gravity. It consists of a s... / Continue →

    Actually, I heard it works in hell too. But for those of you that like it a little cooler, a Latvian firm is offering loans of 50 to 500 Latvian lats ($100 to $1,000) secured only by your immortal soul. Riga-based firm, named Kontora, does not require credit history record or... / Continue →

    University of Lancashire art student Sara Watson painted an old Skoda Fabia to appear invisible when looked at from just the right angle. This happens to be the right angle. If you were standing next to it it would just look like a spraypainted piece of shit. Still, good loo... / Continue →

    Okay, so the wave of literal translations of music videos continues. This time it's Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up, aka the Rick Roll song in case you've been a vegetable for the past year and just came to. And, if that is the case, it's good to have you back. But tel... / Continue →

    Scientists at the University of California Berkeley have announced they're one step closer to the development of an invisibility cloak. The light-bending effect relies on reversing refraction, the effect that makes a straw placed in water appear bent. One approach used nan... / Continue →

    Remember the Holographic Vaio Zoom laptop concept from awhile back? Pretty titillating wasn't it? I wanted one. Did you want one? If you did maybe we could start a club. You know, something with a secret handshake. My dad said we could even use the storage shed out back a... / Continue →

    The British have allegedly developed an 'invisible' tank that will be ready for service by 2012. Basically the technology "uses cameras and projectors to beam images of the surrounding landscape onto a tank." While I can understand that it will probably be better than paint, I ... / Continue →

    You may have already seen this because you're much hipper than I am, but you're not more attractive. Captain Handsome bows to no one in the good looks department. Anyways, someone has developed a technology that allows hidden messages to be printed on shirts, and only show up... / Continue →
