Exactly which reality doesn’t exist until we look at it?

I just have to comment on a recent article in the Independent entitled, ‘Reality doesn’t exist until you look at it, pioneering quantum physics experiment finds’ ,( http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/reality-doesnt-exist-until-you-look-at-it-pioneering-quantum-physics-experiment-finds-10305047.html).
