Scientists who obviously have quite a bit of extra time on their hands have come up with a pretty cool invention -- an invisibility cloak that makes animals disappear before you even have time to blink.
No seriously -- an invisibility cloak, sort of like the one from the Harry Potter movies but not really. That probably doesn't make any sense.
But it will after you see the video of a goldfish and cat trying this thing on "for size" and disappearing right before your very eyes.
Check it out.
Funny, right? At first I thought this was some kind of a joke, but then I watched it again. The fish (and part of the cat) really do seem to vanish in an instant, which definitely makes me wonder how exactly this thing works. Yeah, yeah, it's some sort of optical illusion -- but it's pretty cool!
(And I'm guessing it could probably come in handy for those times when you don't feel like changing the kitty litter or cleaning the aquarium.)
What do you think of this invisibility cloak?
