What would you do if you were invisible for a day ? H.G.Wells and other authors who explored this idea all show the incredible power that an invisible person would have.He or she could go anywhere secretly and steal money or valuables.
However,what all of these authors seemed to miss was that if a person was actually invisible,he would not be able to see! The sense of sight only works when the eyes can capture light. If the back of the eye were transparent,light would pass right through it and no image could be sent to the brain.
Now imagine an invisible person who was also blind! Almost one hundred years after Well'snovel,the closest thing science can match to an invisible man is a 'stealth suit'.
This suit,which is still being developed,is made of like color of wha tever was behind the soldier.This wouldn't be true invisibility.It would be more like a chameleon,which changes the color of its skin to match its background. However,it is the best way to guarantee invisibility without going blind!
