Scientists develop a 6ft 'invisibility megashield' that can hide multiple people by bending light - and you can buy one

The £699 shield uses a precision engineered lens array to bend light, rendering objects behind it almost invisibile.

The megashield is the brainchild of the London-based Invisibility Shield Co, which came up with the initial idea back in 2022.

Since then, the firm has developed and tested various cloaking devices, before landing on the latest design.

The megashield measures 6ft tall and 4ft wide, and is constructed from a high grade polycarbonate.

Using a precision engineered lens array, light reflected from the person standing behind the shield is directed away from the person in front of it.

The lenses in this array are oriented so that the vertical strip of light reflected by the standing/crouching subject becomes diffuse when spread out horizontally on passing through the back of the shield,' the Invisibility Shield Co explained on its Kickstarter page.

I remember watching a program about 20 years ago on the Discovery channel about advanced military technology they were working on. One of the projects was about invisibility. They had a military uniform that blended into the surroundings. To be honest, that uniform blended better than this device.
