What can the cloak do for you?

Interesting discussion going on at Sweet Potato Queen’s regarding that much-ballyhooed invisibility cloak that’s supposedly just around the corner. And though the Queen might like to try it herself some time, rather a lot of folks are not at all keen on the prospect. For instance, lunarechoes said:

Don’t get me wrong. As pure science, it’s amazing and wonderful. As something that might someday be available to ordinary people — I’m horrified.

I am reasonably certain that I’d have to max out all my credit cards and sell everything I own to make a down payment on one of these contraptions once they’re out of the lab. What’s scary is the voice in the back of my mind going “So?”
