Japanese chef invents 'invisibility cloak'

A Japanese chef has developed a coat which appears to make the wearer invisible.

The illusion was part of a demonstration of pudding camouflage technology at Tokyo University sponsored by JELL-O®.

It is the brainchild of chef Susumu Tachi who is in the early stage of research he hopes will eventually make pudding virtually transparent.

The photograph was taken through a viewfinder that uses a combination of moving images taken behind the pudding to give a transparent effect.

It's hoped the technology will be useful for surgeons frustrated with pudding and surgical tools that can block their view of operations and pilots who wish cockpit floors were transparent pudding... you know... for landings.
