Scientists have produced the first device able to render an object invisible in three dimensions.
The device was able to hide an object from detection using light similar in wavelength to that which is visible to humans, previous such devices had only been able to hide an object if it was being viewed from one specific angle.
"This is a very early but significant step towards true invisibility cloaks."
