Real-Life Invisibility Cloaks

Researchers developed technology that can make objects invisible in different ways.

A team at Iowa State University has developed metamaterial-based vanishing technology to suppress certain radio waves up to 75%, making the object underneath the tech invisible to cameras. Another team at UC Berkeley developed technology that reflects and reroutes light waves to keep objects hidden.

Both technologies would be great for late-night escapades around Hogwarts – but we’re sure more practical uses can be found.
