Could you create an invisibility cloak?  I mean if it was possible it would be insane.  But what if there exists a material that scientist created that allows it to bend light or an electromagnetic radiation of an object, giving the appearance that it isn’t there at all.  Light is electromagnetic radiation, made up of vibrations of electric and magnetic fields. Natural materials usually only affect the electric component.  However metamaterials can affect both the electric and magnetic field.   Metamaterial is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in nature. They are made from multiple elements composite from materials such as metals or plastics.  Physicists from the UK and Germany made one small device that made small objects invisible to near-infrared radiation and worked in three dimensions.
