NO, this is not from a Harry Potter movie.
A group of British nerds claim to have created an amazing product invisibility Shield to “surprise friends” and “evade enemies”.
The shield is essentially a flat plate that hides magically who ducks behind.
Even more impressive is the fact that the device requires no electricity.
It works in a clever way, deflecting light around people with a “precision-engineered lens array,” say developers at Invisibility Shield Co.
But it’s not quite perfect – you don’t get a clear picture of the scene behind the subject, more of a blur is created.
So far they have crafted 25 fully functional invisibility shields.
Their goal of raising £5,000/$6,600 has already been exceeded, with more than £77,000/$10,100 pledged to date.
Those offering £299 / $395 can grab a full-size sign measuring 950mm x 650mm and should receive it by the end of the year.
A smaller piece ideal for hiding everyday items is available from £49/$65.
Inventors have also said that the clothing you wear can affect the shield’s effectiveness.
“The shield works best when the clothing you’re wearing is the same color and slightly lighter than or equal to the brightness of the background scenery,” they explain.
“The shield still works very well with dark and differently colored clothing against a light background, but this combination makes the overall face of the shield slightly darker in relation to the background than it would be if the bearer were wearing light-colored clothing.”
