A Canadian company called Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp claims to have developed a ‘Quantum Stealth’ invisibility cloak for use by US and Canadian military and counter terrorism personnel. They go on to state that the cloak works so well and is so top secret that they can’t release actual images of it in use, and instead created the Photoshop mockups you see here. 

"Guy Cramer, CEO of Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp, says he does not care that some observers remain sceptical as to his company’s claims since ‘the people that need to know that it works have seen it’.

'Two separate command groups within the U.S. Military and two separate Canadian Military groups as well as Federal Emergency Response Team (Counter Terrorism) have seen the actual material so they could verify that I was not just manipulating video or photo results,' Mr Cramer said.

'These groups now know that it works and does so without cameras, batteries, lights or mirrors…It is lightweight and quite inexpensive. Both the U.S. and Canadian military have confirmed that it also works against military IR scopes and Thermal Optics.'”

Military use is pretty predictable, but what about all of us Harry Potter fans? Will we get a crack at it too? That would be, yes, completely awesome.
