The Woodmere Art Museum has just opened up their fourth annual straw bale installation to the public! The installation is a Chestnut Hill, PA tradition, kicking off the town’s annual October Harvest/Harry Potter Festival. The installation uses eighty 900 lbs six string straw bales from a local farm, arranged in a manner to promote play and inquiry. Patrons can move between, within, and above the installation by climbing, running, jumping, chasing, bouncing, and hula-hooping. Within each of the major spaces are play accessories including a six foot diameter red ball, an array of inflated truck-sized inner tubes, twenty-five hoops of various diameters, and a straw mattress for jumping into. Upon the closing of the installation in November, the straw bales will be repurposed as a mulch for local mushroom farms . + Woodmere Art Museum The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Quantum Stealth Camouflage is a Hi-Tech Invisibility Cloak

British Columbia-based Hyperstealth Biotechnology claims to be working on an extraordinary “invisibility cloak” that would render its wearer virtually invisible. Citing security concerns, the camouflage-design company has yet to provide anything beyond mock-ups of the Quantum Stealth cloak, but explained that the fabric works by bending light around a person, enabling them to disappear into the environment . While the technology may seem fantastical—its inventors have compared the fabric to Harry Potter’s magical coverup—Hyperstealth Biotechnology insists that they have the backing of the U.S. Pentagon and the Canadian military.

It might sound as fantastical as the Harry Potter stories that inspired the project, but a Canadian firm claims to have designed an invisibility cloak that will disguise American soldiers from their enemies. Hyperstealth Biotechnology told Daily Mail that their Quantum Stealth cloak incorporates light-bending technology that tricks the human eye, making wearers undetectable. Because of security constraints, the firm is not permitted to share their proof of concept, but the U.S. Pentagon and the Canadian military are said to be on board.
