    Invisibility Cloak Technology Took a Huge Leap Forward.



    British Columbia company HyperStealth Biotechnology showed a functioning prototype of its new fabric to the U.S. and Canadian military this year. The material, called Quantum Stealth, bends light waves around the wearer without the use of batteries, mirrors, or cameras. It blocks the subject from being seen by visual means but also keeps them hidden from thermal scans and infrared.

    Rogue Planet Floating Through Space.



    Until this year, scientists knew planets orbited a star. Then, in came CFBDSIR2149. With four to seven times the mass of Jupiter, it is the first free-floating object to be officially defined as an exoplanet and not a brown dwarf.

    Spray-On Skin



    ReCell by Avita Medical is a medical breakthrough for severe-burn victims. The technology uses a postage stamp–size piece of skin from the patient, leaving the donor site with what looks like a rug burn. Then the sample is mixed with an enzyme harvested from pigs and sprayed back onto the burn site. Each tiny graft expands, covering a space up to the size of a book page within a week. Since the donor skin comes from the patient, the risk of rejection is minimal.

    Microsoft Patented the "Holodeck".



    The patent suggests Microsoft wants to take gaming beyond a single screen and turn it into an immersive experience — beaming images all over the room, accounting for things like furniture, and bending the graphics around them to create a seamless environment.

    I'm reading through a QI book atm. Pure hilarity.

    In 1915 Charlie Chaplin entered a Charlie Chaplin lookalike contest. He lost.

    When asked, George W Bush said that his favourite childhood book was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It was published when he was 23.

    Ultra-Flexible "Willow" Glass Will Allow for Curved Electronic Devices.



    Created by New York–based developer Corning, the flexible glass prototype was shown off at an industry trade show in Boston. At only 0.05mm thick, it's as thin as a sheet of paper. Perhaps Sony's wearable PC concept will actually be possible before 2020.
