    "They hid an event for 40 trillionths of a second, according to a study appearing in Thursday's edition of the journal Nature....They tinkered with the speed of beams of light in a way that would make it appear to surveillance cameras or laser security beams that an event, such as an art heist, isn't happening."

    A 40 trillionth of a second heist? You can practice all year long, it's not gonna work. Perhaps a malware popup that fast, might go unnoticed though. ;)
    Wicked fundamental research though. And fast...

    Lol, this sort of stuff is a normal day at the office for Darpa. Of course you won't have to worry about this too much as it'll likely be hundreds of years before even very simple things could be hidden for any useable length of time.

    Well, I saw a few types of invisibility and that one is the worst. This one looks better, eventhough it is just a projection:
