Invisibility Cloak - Harry Potter Meets Real LIfe

Poof! Here’s the Invisibility Cloak, Muggle

Scientists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have succeeded in making an object disappear with the help of an invisibility cloak

For long we have been fascinated with stories where people become invisible now we are close to observe and experience the same with our own eyes. The concept of an invisibility cloak was first introduced to the modern world by J.K. Rowling’s magical world of Harry Potter. For the first time in the history of mankind Scientists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have succeeded in making an object disappear. This new development by the scientists has not as yet succeeded in creating an invisible cloak like that in Harry Potter but, it is the first successful step and can have greater technological and industrial outcomes.

In order to enhance specific properties on the object’s surface they used a material with nano-size particles. And for the first time, researchers from QMUL’s school of electronic engineering and computer science demonstrated a practical cloaking device that in front of electromagnetic waves allowed curved surfaces to appear flat. This practical demonstration could result in a step-change in how antennas are tethered to their platform. Over wide variety of materials, antennas in different shapes and sizes could be attached in awkward places and allow scientist to succeed in creating an invisible cloak.
