Harry Potter may not be as big as a phenomenon as when it first debuted in the late 90s and early 2000s, but there’s no doubt that the magic that J.K Rowling’s book series has had a lasting impact on a lot of people these past two decades. And thankfully, with modern technology, the fantasy isn’t over just yet.
Through the magic of augmented reality, wannabe wizards can now get their own Invisibility Cloak, just like the one that Harry had throughout his adventure. Acting sort of like a wearable green screen, all you have to do is to put it on (on top of your Hogwarts uniform of course), turn on the accompanying app, and just like that, you’ll disappear to the naked eye that’s looking through the app.
This Invisibility Cloak is made by Wow! Stuff, a toy company that is renowned for making a number of Harry Potter paraphernalia, proper replicas from the films that are also functional and fun toys. From magic wands, to the Golden Snitch, and even Tom Riddle’s Diary, Wow! Stuff makes a number of Potterhead must-haves, with this new Invisibility Cloak being the cherry on top.
The Wow! Stuff invisibility cloak is up for pre-order now and comes in two versions. The first being the standard cloak that comes with a stand for you to place your phone, which will retail for around MYR 290. The deluxe version will come with a more elaborate pattern on the cloak as well as a foldable tripod, which will retail for around MYR 330. Pre-orders go live this 1st July.
