Invisible telepathic soldiers anyone?

Army Funds 'Synthetic Telepathy' Research | Danger Room from Wired.com:

"The Army has given a team of University of California researchers a $4 million grant to study the foundations of 'synthetic telepathy.' But unlike old-school mind-melds, this seemingly psychic communication would be computer-mediated."

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Invisibility cloak 'step closer':

"Scientists in the US say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people invisible.

Researchers at the University of California in Berkeley have developed a material that can bend light around 3D objects making them 'disappear'.

The materials do not occur naturally but have been created on a nano scale, measured in billionths of a metre.

The team says the principles could one day be scaled up to make invisibility cloaks large enough to hide people."
