truly a site unseen

Who moved my cheese grater?

Making things invisible is presumably a lot closer to becoming reality than making people invisible, but the human/object interface is likely to be no less problematic:

unseen objects could create a more relaxed environment. just envision a desk which is only filled with your object of present attention. in my current case that would be the cupertino white that is my macbook. but come to think of it, we could even make the desk disappear.

however, rendering certain things around you invisible might cause some problems. so whatever this invisibility-machine will be, it has got to have an opacity setting. if i start walking around, i would very much like to know what is in my path. or at least perceive a glimpse of such object.

Indeed. Were I a better touch-typist, I’d opt for an invisible keyboard.
