(for vehicle-sized camo only)

improve today's camera-screen and camera-projector-reflector invisibility devices by placing the screens on projector-camera combos on robotic arms. Combine with any type of camera and an operater to point out where the enemies (entities to whom you want to look invisible) are. When the vehicle moves, the projectors adjust to be between the camouflaged and the enemies. Use multiple screens to be invisible to multiple points of view.

       But if the entities to whom you want to look invisible have more than one eye, they will use their depth perception and see that the projected image is not really there. This type of technique only works when the object to be hidden is staying still, in an area of broken pattern that it is hard to focus on anyway (like forest). Once moving, it is almost impossible not to find, robotic arms or not.

       What's almost impossible to find?

       Due to the superior camouflage, a 'not' was seemingly missed. But look carefully and it is there.
