Scientists at Duke University have made Star Trek technology real. They have reported in today's online version of the journal Science that a "cloaking device" that hides objects by bending electromagnetic waves has been invented. The unit is a primitive rush job, but they promise a more advanced one is on the way. Next they are working on a phaser that will vaporize terrorists where they stand. Ok, I made up that last one. But wouldn't it be great?
