Since the beginning of time humans and animals have looked for ways to be less visible to opponents. From the art of camouflage to the science of stealth technology, ways have been developed to hide objects and people. Today, scientists are building an invisibility cloak that makes objects and people underneath it seem to disappear.

From Booklist:

Books in the ongoing A Great Idea series provide information about modern inventions, including their ongoing research and development. Each volume includes four chapters of discussion and sidebars, illustrated with clear color photos and followed by a glossary and a short list of books and/or Internet sites. At their best, the books provide fascinating glimpses of cutting-edge engineering. Seldom discussing disadvantages or ethical dilemmas that may arise from these technological advances, the writers focus on the technology and practical benefits of the inventions. Becoming Invisible traces the history of camouflage; looks at invisibility in stealth aircraft, films, and television today; considers current research into light and light-bending materials; and imagines future uses for invisibility technology. Discussions include how inventors are inspired by nature and how this appealing robot might be useful. Presenting specific, current information, these books will appeal to young people intrigued by inventions. Grades 5-7. --Carolyn Phelan
