VANCOUVER -- A Maple Ridge, B.C., inventor claims to have discovered what scientists, armies, children and science fiction fanatics have dreamed of for generations -- a fabric material that can make a person or object completely invisible.

“We were able to make a six-inch object disappear,” Guy Cramer said of his accidental discovery. “I went back to the shop and up-scaled the material and it worked just as well on a person.”

Cramer is the founder of HyperStealth Biotechnology, a company that designs digital camouflage patterns for clients including the Jordanian and Afghanistan armies. He said the Canadian and U.S. militaries are now discussing arrangements to potentially adopt his light-bending technology, which could potentially be used to hide entire airplanes and buildings.
