Would this make a people safer? You are walking late at night and nobody sees you to mug you or whatever. The FBI already has an invisibility suit available, though far from perfect. It is hot and bulky, and you might see it as a shimmering blur - much like the invisible "cow" demons in the old-style Doom game. they were not truly invisible, but in the right light in the game, they could sneak up on you, particularly if you hadn't played the level before.
