Students at Wuhan University in China have developed an invisibility cloak that can hide its wearers from security cameras that are monitored by artificial intelligence (AI). Called the InvisDefense, this cloak is visible to the human eyes but it is covered in a pattern designed by an algorithm that has the ability to blind cameras during the daytime.
It emits unusual heat patterns during the night, which can trick infrared cameras. This technology could be used to make stealth military uniforms.
