Scientists Invents Harry Potter's Invisiblity Cloak

Fact or fiction Harry Potter isn't the only thing that be invisible, Scientists have stolen creativity from Harry Potter and has designed an invisibility device which can hide objects at a wide range of light frequencies.

The group have invented what they believe to be the next best thing - a broadband 'cloak', based on an electronic system, which they describe in Physical Review Letters.

But, unfortunately for Harry Potter fans, they are still a long way off making objects disappear completely.

In fact, they admitted that certain frequencies make the objects MORE visible in their study, published in the journal Physical Review X.

Professor Andrea Alu, from the University of Texas at Austin, told the BBC: "Our active cloak is a completely new concept and design, aimed at beating the limits of [current cloaks] and we show that it indeed does."

He added: "If you want to make an object transparent at all angles and over broad bandwidths, this is a good solution.

"We are looking into realising this technology at the moment, but we are still at the early stages."

And much more than just a childhood dream, this invention could have huge uses in microscopy, military technology and biomedical sensing, according to the study.

But while the object may be invisible at one point in the light spectrum, it acts as a sort of beacon at another point - so it can never be completely invisible

He he he... So Harry Potter still remain the best Scientist in the world.... Flying brooms, invisible cloak, they mumble things and they happen can scientists do any of these.... NO.


  1. They'll perfect the technology in no time but until then it's classified info,guys.
