The Traveler Posted July 16, 2011 Share Posted July 16, 2011 Cloaking device edits out events in space timeHere's a quote from the article..."In essence, it travels like cars on a highway. The spacing between the cars depends on how they move relative to one another, explained McCall. If a heavy rain suddenly begins to beat down on a section of traffic, the cars will lose pace with those ahead and a gap will open between them.This is what McCall proposes doing with light. By speeding up the photons in front and slowing down the ones behind, a dark space opens up."Once that dark region has occurred, you have to undo the process of creating the gap," McCall said.Reversing the process would bring the light back into formation and stitch the gap. However, anything that happened in the dark would stay off the record."Interesting... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
