Based on a recent comment by reader "euphemystic" on another post, I started looking up information on aircraft stealth technology and Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs.)
OLEDs are a new type of LED displays that are actually printed on a thin, flexible polymer medium. This type of display is already used in some cel phones and rumored to be coming on the new ipod nano. Sony has just released an 11-inch OLED video monitor that is 3 millimeters thick.
There seems to be no reason why this material could not have been adapted to use for visual stealth applications. By "visual stealth," I am implying the forbidden-as-wacko-if-you-mention-it word "invisibility."
