"We really can hide objects. ... We can switch for a short moment and make it disappear," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

In a video posted on YouTube, the strands are seen appearing and disappearing during a demonstration in Aliev's lab.

"It's interesting for ordinary people, because usually scientists show something microsized under some microscope," he said

"But here, in real time, real objects were disappearing," he added.
