And the response to the sinister side of this technology may have unintended consequences of its own. (Filmed at TEDxAustin.)

Realizing the world's first 3D cloak of invisibility, engineering professor Andrea Alú explains how the discovery of metamaterials is pushing technology beyond conventional limits, producing vastly new opportunities beyond what nature can offer. This emerging technology offers extensive applications in bioscience, energy, defense and plenty more we can only imagine from here.

The Wireless Networking & Communications Group, located in the Electrical & Computer Engineering building on the UT Austin campus, is looking to build a better Internet. With video making up most of the bandwidth on the Internet today, this UT group is making the Information Superhighway more efficient.
