Ali Aliev, a scientist from University of Texas at Dallas, has developed several strands of what look like a thread which become invisible when heated, several international news sites reported on Thursday, November 10, 2011.

According to reports, this could pave the way for the invention of the “invisibility cloak“, a cloak made popular by J.K. Rowling in her Harry Potter book series.

Aliev reportedly uses carbon nanotubes. He heats them up rapidly until the objects underneath them disappear. It uses the same optical illusion known as the “mirage effect.”

Below is a video demonstration of the “invisibility cloak strands.”
