MOST AMAZING BUILDINGS PROPOSALS: PART 4 – Invisible Skyscraper

“The South Korean government has granted approval to begin construction on what will be the world’s first “invisible” tower.”

It gives me great pleasure to give you an addition to my most amazing building proposals series. Credit to I Fucking love Science for finding this one for me and with a headline like that, I don’t think I can thank them enough!

Infinity Tower, the name given to the innovative, 1,476 foot, invisible masterpiece, will use an LED facade system and optical cameras to create a kind of cloaking device. Thought it will not be entirely transparent, it will be extremely translucent.

The LED system will utilize a series of cameras that will transmit realtime images to the building’s reflective surface. When fully activated, the tower should blend in with the skyline.

Here is the estimations of what the tower will look like when the cloak is at 0%, 30% and 100% power.
