A strange Chinese homegrown invisibility cloak is showcased in Zhuhai Airshow. It is not a cloak that Harry Potter has in the fiction that may make a person in the cloak invisible, but it is still useful as the cloak may make the person in the cloak undetectable by infrared detection device.

The above two photos show the infrared image of a man in the cloak and that of the man without the cloak.
