Canada’s Hyperstealth Biotechnology already manufactures camouflage military uniforms for countries around the world.
Now the company has patented a new Quantum Stealth material that disguises a military’s soldiers — and even its tanks, aircraft, and ships — by making anything behind it seem invisible.
Earlier this month, Hyperstealth filed a patent for the material, which doesn’t require a power source and is both paper-thin and inexpensive — all traits that could make it appealing for use on the battlefield.
