Superlens - Making things invisible

This is straight out of a magician's box.

"Teams of scientists around the globe say they're making progress on theories and experiments involving cloaking -- that is, making things invisible.

In theory, all that's needed to make a small object invisible is something called a superlens, says Graeme Milton, a mathematician at the University of Utah."

I wonder what purpose this serves?
