Yup, it’s that time a year for another invisibility cloak story

Most people don’t realize that the news media airs reruns. But kinda like how every Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life pops up on television, the news media has to rerun the invisibility cloak story with the requisite Harry Potter reference.

In 2008, they wowed us with news of the amazing invisibility cloak in October.

In 2009, they reran the story in May.

And now we’re hearing about the amazing invisibility cloak in January.

It’s not that I don’t find the invisibility cloak idea awesome. And it’s not that I think this is some kind of pseudoscience. It’s just the hype that I’m sick of. The invisibility cloak is the modern day flying car. The media promises we’ll have it one day and we probably will. It just probably won’t work as well as in the movies and probably won’t be very practical.

All I’m saying to the media is stop feeding the public unrealistic expectations about it.
