Simple invisibility cloak from off-the-shelf lenses

Simple invisibility cloak from off-the-shelf lenses

Invisibility cloaks are common in folklore and fiction. The notion of hiding or rendering an object transparent strikes the fancy of many, especially writers. In J.K.Rowling’s book “The Tales of Beedle theBard,” one of the three brothers escaped Death by putting on an invisibility cloak that was given by Death himself. The cloak was passed down through generations until it reached the hands of Harry Potter who eventually defeated Voldemort with the help of the same cloak.

Judy Celine Ick Department of English and Comparative Literature College of Arts and Letters UP Diliman “The Forests of Silence: Global Shakespeare in the Philippines, the Philippines in Global Shakespeare,” Shakespeare Survey 71, 26-34. To use the term “global” alongside “Shakespeare” is just too delicious a temptation for most academics and artists to pass up.
