25 invisible tank

The British military scientists have been working on a new technology called “e-camouflage” which uses e-ink to make tanks turn invisible. Highly advanced sensors attached on the outside of the tank will project images of the surrounding environment back onto the outside of the vehicle, effectively turning it into part of the landscape, which is pretty much invisible from far – unless of course somebody hears the tanks rumbling, or notices the tracks and trampled shrubbery on the ground created from some unknown entity. This technology would certainly work from far, but what happens when the tanks get closer to the enemy and are noticed? Soldiers who fire their guns blindly are bound to get one or two tanks. Not to mention, radars will definitely notice the oncoming vehicles. But the technology is yet to be perfected, and it’s expected to arrive in five years. Let’s hope we’ll get to see some video footage as well.
