NEWS DESK: Millions of people have been amazed by a ‘quantum invisibility cloak’ after footage of a man using one went viral, reported Metro News.

Within days, over 21.4 million people had seen the video which shows the man disappearing behind a cloak he is holding.

However, with popularity comes scrutiny and it did not take long for the video to be exposed as a hoax. Chinese web users are enthused over a new product that claimed to be a China-made ‘quantum of invisibility cloak’. 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.

He said: ‘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. Soldiers wearing this cloak can avoid night vision spy but what happened if the criminals used the cloak?’ But Zhu Zhensong, producer at Quantum Video production company told Liberation Daily that there were no such thing as invisibility cloak.

MailOnline reported Zhensong revealed the video had been edited and filmed with a blue or green plastic cloth. He said: ‘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.’
