If you think becoming invisible is limited only to movies and top-secret government programs, think again — it’s a power that’s for sale online from artist and engineer Ian Charnas, who fronts an Etsy shop.
Charnas’ secret is a plastic sheet. It’s not just any sheet, of course, but a Large Lenticular Sheet for Invisibility Shield that measures 40 x 28 inches. Made of PETG, it sells for $80.
Lenticular films are used in packaging to create eye-catching three-dimensional effects by bending light. But in this larger format, what’s more interesting than making someone partially disappear . . . or hiding presents in plain sight?
