Invisibility Cloak

Baile Zhang, an assistant professor of physics at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore has created a small prototype of an invisibility cloak. In order for something to be "invisible" you must have light bend around you to where you can't be seen, and it has finally been done on a small level.

looks like a simple refraction trick. Moving along.

It's not a trick. Refraction occurs when it hits something (usually water) and "bends" at different angles. What this is doing is completely bending light around the orange object.

refraction has nothing to do with bending at different angles, it bends like to one angle unless the surface isnt flat (like water)
