Invisible tanks could be on battlefield within five years

Armoured vehicles will use a new technology known as "e-camouflage" which deploys a form "electronic ink" to render a vehicle "invisible".

Highly sophisticated electronic sensors attached to the tank's hull will project images of the surrounding environment back onto the outside of the vehicle enabling it to merge into the landscape and evade attack.

The electronic camouflage will enable the vehicle to blend into the surrounding countryside in much the same way that a squid uses ink to help as a disguise.

Unlike conventional forms of camouflage, the images on the hull would change in concert with the changing environment always insuring that the vehicle remains disguised.

How could this possibly work?

Each section of the tank's exterior can only be one color/image. How could multiple viewers at different angles see an image that fits with all of their expected backgrounds?

Millions of dollar spent on new tanks with cloaking devices? American.

Millions of dollars spent on low income housing? ZOMG Commie Obama.

Had to point that out. Have a nice day.

Radar will dispose of this "stealth tank".

These light benders only work for visible light frequencies.

Joel:

Low income housing...long term results were disastrous:

1) High crime rate;

2) High gang infestation;

3) Depression of tax base in the surrounding area;

4) Collapse of local public schools at an incremental rate disproportionate to other public school communities; and

5) Collapse of sustainable business environment in surrounding neighborhoods.

See Red Hook Projects - NY City

See nine of the top ten most dangerous cities in America have the highest rates of "low income housing."

Had to point that out.

Have a nice day.

No tanks!
