South Korea To Build Skyscraper That Does Not Beat Height Record.
On the Other Hand, It Will Be Invisible, So That's Something.

Let me just point out that the planned Invisible Skyscraper is by Incheon Airport. The 450 meter invisible skyscraper will be called "Completely Unforeseeable Tragedy Tower."

No that snark aside, I'm sure it'll have all the requisite lights and stuff.

Invisible skyscraper. Unbelievable. It's going to have an actual cloaking device. You know, the technology you've seen for real and also in movies where you just shoot a camera at your rear and then project that image forward, in order to appear "transparent."

Charles Wee of GDS Architects explained in a statement that the company wanted to “provide the World’s first invisible tower, showcasing innovative Korean technology.”

The tower’s facade will come equipped with LED projectors and cameras. The cameras will capture the area around the building, then stitch them together in a panorama to display through the projectors. The result will make the tower seem transparent from the outside when the projectors are turned on.

Speaking of skyscraper optical effects, the so-called "Walkie Talkie" skyscraper in London has a highly reflective and concave surface... and why yes, it does seem to be focusing the sun's rays on the street to a temperature hot enough to melt cars. Just like Gigantic Magnifying Lenses are supposed to do.

I'm sure you've seen this technology before but in case you haven't...
