A building that can actually disappear? Well, “disappearing” here does not involve any kind of invisibility cloak, but rather, it will be on the receiving end of LED rows that will help create the illusion of invisibility. In a nutshell, whatever is seen behind the building will be projected onto the front of the building, which means whoever is looking in the building’s direction will think that they are seeing through it, when in fact, it is just covered by a projection of the back of the building.
This particular building has already picked up an approval for its plans by the South Korean government in order to give them the green light to construct an invisible tower outside of Seoul near the Incheon International Airport. Hmmm, having an invisible building located near the airport does not quite sound like a good idea at all, after all, what if the planes do not see this building?
This building will be under the purview of GDS Architects of Pasadena, California, where they are the ones who have installed cameras which will capture real-time views from behind the building, before showing them off on the front thanks to the wonders of a bunch of LEDs.
