Scientists interpret physics behind invisibility cloaks...

"Is a perfect invisible cloak theoretically possible? Are there certain wavelengths—such as those in the visible spectrum—that can’t be made invisible? How will using imperfect materials affect the performance of a cloak? Scientists from Zhejiang University and MIT have recently analyzed the physics behind invisibility cloaks in an attempt to answer some of these questions." [more]

I heard about the real invi cloak a while back in 2003, was still in CSIRO (and procrastinating around). I think I read it in science.box.sk? It was done by some jap uni guy...

Anyhoo when I saw your post it reminds me of this article. Then I tried googling it, and surprise surprise...
