real invisibility cloak

it is seriously limited and small, but it does really exist and does really imbue invisibility.

it intercepts light on one side, converts it into plasmons, funnels them around the cloaked object, then converts them back to visible light on the other side. so, when you look at the object all you see is whatever is behind the object.


there are apparently already practical applications of the tech in the area of microscopes that all but a very small portion of the world's population will find incredibly boring.
