The Science of Over the Edge: Invisibility

The World's first invisible skyscraper

In the Over the Edge series Minan character employ technology called "chameleon battle skin" which makes them invisible to all forms of detection except physical touch. Robo eyes and snooper robos used in "low tech" (places where infra-red and x-ray detection will not be deployed) settings use micro cameras and screens to hide in plain sight. In Seoul, Korea, builders are now at work constructing the first invisible skyscraper which will use this same technology to hide in plain sight. Because the tower will use cameras and screens to create the illusion of invisibility, they can also turn the entire building into a movie screen or add images to the scenes picked up on one side of the building and projected to the other side. Local birds and airplanes might not find this innovation quite so thrilling.
