Summary
From Harry Potter to King Arthur, stories about invisibility cloaks have been around for hundreds or possibly thousands of years. It seems mere fantasy that something like that could exist, but today there are several different kinds of technology that could be used to make someone appear invisible, or at least very inconspicuous. Through direct explanations, this book covers the history of invisibility cloak stories and connects some of the coolest recent technology to these tales. Covering both STEM and literature components, this book will enchant sci-fi lovers and scientists alike
