Ghost in the Shell technology, in real life.

Scientists in the US say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people invisible.

Researchers at the University of California in Berkeley have developed a material that can bend light around 3D objects making them "disappear".

The materials do not occur naturally but have been created on a nano scale, measured in billionths of a metre.

The team says the principles could one day be scaled up to make invisibility cloaks large enough to hide people.

This earlier version of the technology developed in Japan influenced by the anime, voted as the coolest invention by Times in 2000. However it is not practical and bulky at that time.

Stealth tanks, anyone?
