cold fjord writes: As part of its the marketing campaign for the new hydrogen fuel cell powered F-Cell, Mercedes-Benz has equipped one with a cloaking device. They covered an F-Cell with LEDs and use cameras to capture the view which is then displayed on the LEDs to effectively remove the vehicle from the line of sight. It is in essence an active cloaking device. Check it out. Many people have speculated about doing this sort of thing before, Mercedes-Benz has demonstrated it.

Tactical Camera Screenshot-sm 137

An anonymous reader writes "What do you get when you mount a Nikon D200 with a standard rifle stock? Why a Tactical Camera of course! One that no reporter would be caught with in a war zone or covering any armed action anywhere. What started out as a tongue in cheek project for April Fools wound up being quite the successful demonstration of concept. It features a fully functional trigger; it has controls for operating the shutter and auto focus; and for the patient shots, it has a mounted bipod. Carry sling optional."
