Thermal invisibility cloak in first demonstration

Researchers have built and tested a form of invisibility cloak that can hide objects from heat.Similar cloaking efforts are underway to make objects invisible to light and even sound waves, but this is the first device to work with heat.The prototype, to be outlined in Physical Review Letters, contained a 5cm-wide flat region impervious to heat flowing around it.The technology could be put to use in thermal management in electronics.
