I hate to burst your bubble, but that invisibility that is shown in that video is not what you think. Its not a hoddie that you can put on and than
walk up to your friend and he will say "wow you are invisible". Its only transparent from one angle.
Here is the explanation of how it works. The clothes are made out of a special material that is made to reflect light as much as possible, sort of
like a wearable mirror. The wearer stands with a camera behind him recording what is behind him. Another camera projects the image of what is going on
behind him on to his front, so you are "seeing through him".
If you would like to achieve the same effect, stand in front of a powerpoint projector in a white poncho. I remember last year the entire 8th grade
had to watch a powerpoint on volcanoes. The presenter (unknowingly) seemed transparent, because the image that the projector was projecting projected
almost perfectly onto his white shirt.
I believe that I found this on howstuffworks.
