If the entity known as "God" is not a figment of our collective imagination—product of our desire to find solace from the nonsense that is life—he actually did a pretty horrible job. Maybe things would have been a lot different if he left everything to the little girl in this short animated film.

Come on, science. There's not much we ask of you: unlimited power, teleportation, invisibility cloaks. I get that the first few might be a little troubling, but really, you should be able to get a grip on something a bunch of high-school students can do in a Scottish castle. Which is why I'm not really that excited to see a demonstration of a new 'invisibility cloak' that hides tiny things when used at exactly the right angle.
The demo in question comes from the University of Rochester, where professors have made an 'invisibility cloak' from a series of lenses. Sure, it's impressive, being able to hide stuff with just some off-the-shelf optics. And fine, it's the first concept that cloaks objects in three dimensions, from multiple angles. But whatever. Until I've got my invisibility cloak, I won't be totally satisfied. [University of Rochester]
