INVISIBILITY devices, long the realm of science fiction and fantasy, have
moved closer after scientists engineered a material that can bend visible
light around objects.
The breakthrough could lead to systems for rendering anything from people to

Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley, whose work is funded
