As all good cyclists know, wearing high vis clothing & reflectives renders one completely invisible
to SMIDSYs... I was wondering, would this have the opposite effect?

Cheers, helen s ;-)

Well, I can still see the cyclist :)

Odd really, you'll be virtually invisible as long as the enemy are looking at you through the
special system he has developed. If they look at you without his camera you'll be there!

You'd need very strange bars if you were going to cycle in a garment that held your arms out at that
angle, too.

And I thought I was the only one to have spotted the flaw ;-)

Yeah, but motorists will be able to buy this special devices to let them see hazards beyond
the next car.

1. Any pilot who needs to see through the floor of the cockpit to be able to land his plane would
seriously worry me!!

2. Science fiction becomes science fact (again).....memories of Predator here, although the
irridescent green effect would have shone in the jungle!!

Yeah, right. Like they will be able to buy windows so they can see hazards nearer than the next
car, you mean?

I wonder if you wouldn't mind piecing out our imperfections with your thoughts; and while you're
about it perhaps you could think when we talk of bicycles, that you see them printing their proud
wheels i' the receiving earth; thanks awfully.
