If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you may have heard of an invisibility cloak. Now, That science-fiction device turns into a reality and is available for everyone. However, the London, UK-based firm called ‘Invisibility Shield Co’ has come up with real and fully functional invisibility shields.
They don’t want to stop there; they want to bring that invention to the use of the common people. As a result, they have started a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the project. The magic behind the invisibility shield is the array of vertically placed convex lenses.
What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible
Everyone has a dream about turning invisible in childhood days. This funny and surprising novel will take you to the fantasy world. “What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible” by Ross Welford is a beautiful novel about a little girl who turned invisible. However, the audiobook version runs 8 hours and 48 minutes and is narrated by Aysha Kala.
The reflected light from the vertically standing or crouching subject is redirected by the lenses and never reaches the viewer. Moreover, the invisible shields are made by extruding and then embossing a polymer.
Because of the vertically placed lenses, this updated invisibility shield works well against the backgrounds with horizontal and uniform objects. That includes rendered walls, grasses, foliage, painted lines, sand, sky, and even on a beach. Those shields are available in two different sizes.
The full-sized one measures 950 x 650mm and the small one measures 310 x 210mm. Likewise, anyone can assemble the invisibility shield within minutes. According to their campaign, The shield itself and its supports are made from flexible and non-rigid material.
In other words, it was not designed to be an anti-riot shield, but rather to protect you from visibility. As I mentioned earlier, this invisibility shields raising funds on Kickstarter.
If you want to surprise your friends, then get the full-size shield for the pledge of US$ 395. Or get the smaller version for US$ 65. You can even pledge for two or more full-size invisibility shields to make your large DIY invisibility shield that hides massive objects. As of their campaign, the estimated delivery date is Dec 2022
