Take a Closer Look: Super-Lens Technology for Your Smartphone

Metamaterials—artificial materials that exhibit physical properties not seen in nature—could make the magical a reality. In the future, with metamaterials, you could make objects levitate with a laser beam, make yourself vanish, or create a super-lens to turn your smartphone into a high-power microscope.
