HyperStealth is a Canadian company founded in 1999. Since 2011, it has been working on a technology that could make objects or individuals invisible. And it has recently taken an additional step by filing a patent application, in order to begin the process of manufacturing its device.

The Canadian company Hyperstealth Biotechnology is a specialist in camouflage. But this time, they really went a long way. The company has developed a screen capable of deflecting light, so that the objects behind it disappear. Even if the illusion is not absolutely perfect, it is very close to an invisible cloak, worthy of science fiction. The most amazing thing is that the material requires no feeding, is very thin and is inexpensive. In addition, it is also effective with infrared and ultraviolet waves. It should, in the first place, be intended for military use.

” You see me, you see me more, you see me a little “

Its innovation, called Quantum Stealth, is a material with amazing optical properties. By deflecting the path of light, he manages to really hide a person or an object, in a convincing illusion of invisibility. In the video above, for example, a man seems to disappear behind a screen. In addition, the company claims that its creation can mask infrared, ultraviolet, but also thermal signals.

However, the transparency of the material is not total. You can easily perceive the presence of such a screen. In addition, as we can see in the demo video, a user located just behind the object still appears slightly, due to the properties of light. You have to respect a certain distance to be “invisible”.

Quantum Stealth has the advantage, however, of being inexpensive to produce and requiring no source of energy. And it can also work well day and night, an interesting asset for its commercial target.

Military camouflage

Because HyperStealth was originally a manufacturer of camouflage uniforms. It is therefore not surprising to see its innovation primarily intended for the army. The idea would be to use the material to make troops, vehicles, ships or military aircraft undetectable, which can be a decisive advantage.
