New real-life 6ft invisibility 'megashield' can hide multiple people

Interesting.  I can’t think of any practical applications for it at the moment since you have to lug the shield around with you anywhere you go, then set it up to hide behind it.

"Could prove invaluable for soldiers on the battlefield". What happens if the enemy steals it?

They would have an invisibility shield.  

Hardly a reason not to use it.

It's not going to fool FLIR.

good for hiding snipers...but does this also work from a different perspective?

That's very clever, and can only get better as time goes on

It may be able to hide someone behind it, but it does not succeed at hiding itself. In the picture the shield itself is visible by the rectangle-shaped distortions in the expected background. And I would think that if it was viewed at an angle instead of directly ahead, it would become obvious.

The obvious further development is to incorporate this technology into the body of vehicles and aircraft.

Hinters have been using a version of this for quite a while now. It's a favorite with bow hunters.
