In an interesting article on EETimes, the Chinese are now creating “anti-cloaking” devices to counter America’s cloaking devices.  Could a new cold war (first suggested by colleague George Leopold in a newsletter) spur on some new innovations in the field?

It truly is a shame that it has to occur like this, but there is nothing like the fear of another (potentially hostile) country getting an advantage on you, to spur on funding for research (remember the space race?).  Could be some interesting technology that will eventually get into consumer’s hands.  Hopefully this technology can be used for good.  (I somehow see people sneaking into the opposite gender’s changerooms as a consumer application)
