Real x-ray specs
 
A new optical effect has been created in a London laboratory that means solid objects such as walls could one day be rendered transparent, scientists report today in the journal Nature Materials.

Neato, Didn't exactly understand alll of it but alas. I wonder if that will ruin it for people. Kinda kill the challenge of being able to see up skirts instead jus through them. *Laughs* Ya ok i suck with jokes. >.>

that could bring an entire new weapon to the battlefield. Think of a sniper covered in that stuff so that all he had to do was have a small emitter that rendered him completely transparent (actually now that i think about it idk if it would work. it would just make him visible XD) But it would be sweet still.

Think of the medical applications - instead of a 2d x-ray, or a static cat-scan - you could actually SEE internal organs without having to cut the person open :p

well isnt it actually a material that they can make transparent, not googles. so that means that unless we can apply it to human flesh it wouldnt help :(

Researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland, have pioneered the technique which could be used to see through rubble at earthquake sites, or look at parts of the body obscured by bone.
First two paragraphs ;)

This new transparent material created by the entanglement is made up of molecules that are half matter and half light. This allows light to be amplified without population inversion for the first time in a solid. Professor Chris Phillips, of Imperial College London, says:

The team also discovered that as light passes through this new material, it slows right down and could potentially be completely stopped and stored. Professor Phillips believes this has important implications for entirely secure information networks. He says:
but these say material....


EDIT: also, its title is "New material means 'x-ray specs' no longer required"

Oh right the helpful implications! I gotchya sykoi :D Ever the kinda thinker ey.


I jsut hope its not a too good to be true.

Um, Aaron, you do realise that these almost certainly aren't going to be refined enough to allow you to see through clothing, right? Also, there's no way you'd be able to attain one....

Sorry to let you down dude
