An “invisibility cloak”, popularised by Harry Potter, designed to hide its user from security cameras has been discovered by students in China’s Wuhan University.

The InvisDefense can apparently hide you from artificial intelligence monitored security cameras and can work in the day as well as night. The product is low cost won first prize in a contest sponsored by Huawei Technologies.


How does the coat work?
The coat uses a pattern to blind the cameras when used in the day, while at night it emits unusual heat signals to confuse infrared cameras, The Independent reported.

While the coat doesn’t make you disappear from the naked eye, human monitored cameras too can easily detect wearers of the coat. It may potentially confuse some of the detection systems used in self-driving cars but human drivers will, obviously, be able to see the wearer of the coat.
