“Invisibility” Cloak

By: Dan

Everybody has probably fantasized about having an invisibility cloak like the one from Harry Potter. Though that may be a long way away, we now have an “invisibility” cloak that can hide you from radar. The latest advancement comes from Iowa State University, and does nothing to protect you from the naked eye or from someone watching through a camera. However, it can hide you from machines and radar. It was achieved by embedding resonators filled with galinstan into silicone sheets. Once you stretch these sheets, and cover something with it, it can suppress radar waves up to 75%. This kind of tech can be used in stealth fighters, as it is relatively light, and can be very useful for many purposes.

 

Also, in Berkeley, a similar kind of invisibility tech was developed recently. This tech reflects light to keep objects hidden. The method uses gold nanoantennas that reroute light waves so the object it covers is invisible once the material is turned on by switching the gold’s polarization. While devices that grant full invisibility may be decades away, it is clear that significant progress is being made in this field and that the hope of seeing a true invisibility cloak is more than just optimistic idealism.

  1. I look after a vape store directory site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the United States that likewise markets CBD goods. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not offer CBD products such as CBD oil. We solely provide promotion and marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Retailer and if you take a close peek, you will see that they promote a rather wide-ranging stable of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is applying double standards to many different firms. Due to this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment choices and presently, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is definitely unlawful and inequitable as it should be applying a consistent standard to all companies. I am yet to consult another lawyer from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
