Examples cont. *A college professor in Tokyo, Japan, has created an "invisibility" cloak. Unlike Harry Potter's magical cloak, this one is high-tech camouflage. It is made of material that works as a screen. A video camera records the scenery behind the wearer. The video is sent to a projector, which flashes the scene onto the fabric. The wearer blends into the background! The camouflage system may be available in 2008. *A "clothing server" helps you pick outfits that match for special occasions and even dusts pollen off your jacket if you have allergies. *Vitamin C T-Shirts: Once you put it on Vitamin C rubs into your skin and gives you your daily Vitamin C dose.
