Troubling Developments

Just real quick:
So the Guardian puts out an article about an "invisibility" device that completely shields objects from radar (if not yet from visibility). However, the troublesome part is that in such a short article Harry Potter's invisibility cloak was referenced 5 times. Maybe the author's purposefully belaboring what might be the obvious association for humour's sake, but perhaps there's just something fundamentally awry with the British subconcious.

I guess the slighly more frightening thing is that the military is spending huge amounts of money on stuff like this when no one has been killed by anything involving radar for years. We need a device that will cloak footsoldiers from bombs and shit, not something that's going to prevent the North Koreans from seeing our spy planes.

The most important question: will the ships be able to fire their photon torpedoes while in cloak?
