When you read it like this, seems almost surreal, because this is something humans wanted to achieve for centuries.
Something like this we were only able to see in fiction movies but is it possible that it is finally becoming real ?
In a study from Sweden's Karolinska Institutet a team of neuroscientists now report a perceptual illusion of having an invisible body.
It showed that when our body feels invisible, we experience a positive change, it changes our physical stress response in challenging situations.
Recent science materials have shown that human invisibility is not something impossible, in the face it might be possible in the not so distant future.
This seems like a good news, but it is still unknown how it will affect on us, our brain and body.
Some researchers described the illusion of having an invisible body. That experiment involves a participant, who is standing up and wearing a set of head-mounted displays.
Then he has to look down, at his body, and what is really surprising is that instead of his own body, he sees an empty space.
Scientist touches the participant's body, in order to evoke the feeling of having an invisible body, and he touches it in various locations with a paintbrush, while the other paintbrush that is held in another hand is imitating the movements in mid-air in full view of the participant.
Scientists have found out that heart rate of the participants was lower when they experienced the invisible body illusion.
Also the level of stress was lower.
