Now invisibility cloaks and shields are not limited to sci-fi movies. You can also buy one for yourself. Thanks to a UK-based company that has made this futuristic technology a reality.
London-based startup ‘Invisibility Shield Co’ has developed a fully functional invisibility shield
To develop this invisibility cloak, researchers used a special lens array to redirect light. This lens array works by deflecting light from the subject (behind the shield), away from the observer.
The lenses in this array are oriented vertically so as to allow light from the subject to diffuse when it passes through the shield. Moreover, the light from the background is refracted towards the observer. This does not allow the observer to spot the subject hiding behind the shield.
This shield gives the best results against uniform backgrounds like foliage, grass, rendered walls, sand, sky, and asphalt.
Shield produced is not only lightweight and portable but it also doesn’t need the power to function. The material used for these shields is UV resistant, temperature resistant, and extremely durable. These shields are environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable.
According to the Invisibility Shield, “We went through countless iterations, tested a lot of materials, and experienced a lot of failures. But along the way, we managed to develop a reliable, scalable, and efficient manufacturing process and created what we believe are the best invisibility shields ever made,”
