    Will we see Stealth from this? combine a photographic layer and a projection layer in one piece of clothing and you would have enough of an image to camouflage at long distance or in largely cluttered areas.

    I want a jumper like that! No idea what for but it would make me soooo cool! :eyebrow:

    Seriously... grow up. As impressive as it sounds, it won't be nearly as good once it's on the mass market and it'll be way overpriced and pretty useless due to the first part of this sentence.

    Projection in stealth technologies is always flawed since you are taking the image of a wave at a surface then projecting that image from a point or array of points. This looks unconvincing, particularly as distance between an observer and the object varies due to the differences of far and near field diffraction from a point source. Also, no colour reproduction is perfect so there will differences between the image and projection anyway. You have to refract the actual incident light rays around the object in order for "invisibility shrouds" to work. This has been done in 2d on a small scale, browse newscientist.com or search journals for details. Still a good decade away from macroscopic applications of such technology by most estimations I'm afraid.

    well you wont be invisible with your stealth suit YET, but it will do for some ranged stuff besides if military thinks the same they'll be developing some mil'stuff which will be higher grade offcourse.... this is pretty neat tho... bring in them stealth suits...
