Remember the bond car? (aston martin)



Remember how they said it used cameras to make it invisible?


They're doing it in real life, first here with this coat:

It looks like as if three men walking behind are seen through the body of graduate student Kazutoshi Obana during a demonstration of optical camouflage technology at Tokyo University, conducted by Faculty of Engineering Prof. Susumu Tachi, in Tokyo in this Feb. 5, 2003 file photo. The disappearing coat is part space-age material, part camera trick. A video camera behind the coat sends footage to a projector, which bounces the image off the front of coat's reflective surface much like a movie screen works. Viewed through a lens of the project, the coat - even when wrinkled - appears see-though. when demonstration conducted by Faculty of Engineering Prof. Susumu Tachi is an early stage of his research that will eventually enable camouflaged objects virtually transparent by wearing an optical device. This photo was taken through the special viewfinder. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi, File)

yeah the marine corps already have a suit like that. uses many smal cameras surrounding the entire body, and basically small tvs that just show the other side.
they have an entire body suit and it actaully does a better job then what u see above.. u can barely notice the person cept when he is moving, since the cameras cant feed the images that fast..

i saw it on tv about 3-4 years ago on tlc
