A new wetsuit has been referred to as  an underwater  invisibility cloak because it prevents sharks and other fish from detecting tiny electrical signals from divers’ muscles.   Essentially it is a Faraday Cage built into a wetsuit,  and it’s a very clever marriage of science and technology.   It will not,  however,  prevent a shark from seeing you,  sizing you up,  and deciding to test your suitability for a meal.
