I'm reading H.G. Wells' "The Invisible Man" in my down-time (i.e. my frequent trips to the bathroom).

It's sad to think how technology has killed the concept of the "invisible man." Thermal imaging, CO2 meters, radar/sonar...the Invisible Man would only be invisible to the layman. But to any professional he would be as plainly evident as Kevin Bacon's junk in "Hollow Man."

While it's true that new technologies have, at the same time, given more life to the actual invisibility of a man, being able to remove a cloak at any time and regain visibility kind of defeats the purpose of invisibility in the first place. I mean, without the spiral into madness, what's the point?
