Other people want to get in line to be one of the first to take a commercial space flight. This is what I'd like to reserve:
Researchers have taken the next step on the road to constructing a cloak of invisibility or a powerful "superlens" capable of capturing fine details invisible to current lenses. A group from the University of California, Berkeley, this week is publishing the first demonstrations of materials capable of bending visible or near-visible light the "wrong" way in three dimensions.

For invisibility, researchers need their metamaterials to have an index less than one (the index of air). That makes it possible to channel light around a region like air around an airplane wing. No light inside means no reflection to reveal the contents of the space, hence, invisibility.
The beauty of having an ivisibility cloak is that it would both amuse me and please a lot of people I know, too.
