Cloaking Device Engaged (sometime)

Certainly to be the quote of the day:

"These materials would comprise a complete -- almost magical -- mastery over light," said David Schurig, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University, who did not participate in the new research. "They would enable not just invisibility cloaking, but arbitrary control over the richest information channel humans employ. One thing I know for sure, it will happen sometime between now and the technological singularity."

(emphasis mine)

Thanks, doc, for clearing up that time frame for us...
