So I recently came across a slew of articles talking about Quantum Stealth, a new fabric technology that has the effect of an invisibility cloak. It's made by the company Hyperstealth (the same guys who teamed up with ADS to make the US4CES camo for the army Camouflage Improvement Effort) , and it's essentially a light bending fabric. Here's the HyperStealth "about us" which mentions all the projects they've done including Quantum stealth.

and here is the Quantum stealth page itself

there is also a Soldier Systems article

You could see this whole concept is from 2 years ago.

That's basically just a 'we're gonna make this in the future', and the level of completeness is probably similar of that of the F-22 in the 80's or something.

Still exciting to see. The article says it currently reduces the visual signature by about 95%, which is probably still only under perfect conditions, but even if it only does maybe 60%, wouldn't that still be better than any camo pattern printed on a uniform today?

I'll believe it when I don't see it.

Yeah, remains to be seen how this will be successfully put into practice in the field.
