MILLIONS of people were fooled a viral video of a “quantum invisibility cloak”. It recorded over 24 million views within days.
The video shows a man disappearing behind a cloak he is holding. However, the video has been exposed as a hoax.
Chen Shiqu, deputy head of Criminal Investigation Department at Ministry of Public Security, shared the video claiming the cloak could be useful to the military.
“This is a quantum technology-made cloth that is made of transparent material, it can reflect the light wave around the person who wears it so it can make the person disappear,” he said.
“Soldiers wearing this cloak can avoid night vision spy but what happened if the criminals used the cloak?”
However, Zhu Zhensong, producer at Quantum Video production company told Liberation Daily that there were no such thing as invisibility cloak.
He said the video had been edited and filmed with a blue or green plastic cloth.
“Softwares such as Adobe’s After Effects, Nuke or Blackmagic Fusion can edit the background and blend the object into it. The effect has previously seen in a lot of action movies,” said Zhu.
