Ever since I was a little kid I wished I could make myself invisible. Then along came Star Trek and brought that fantasy to the television screen. How cool it would be to be able to walk around without anyone seeing you! Think of all the things you could do and conversations you could eavesdrop on! We have seen many things first on Star Trek that are now devices used in the world today, such as cell phones, microwave ovens, computers, scanners, and so forth. Now comes the "invisibility cloak'! I want one!
