Invisibility Shield

Real-Life Invisibility Shield

Watch the video or read the Instructable to learn how to make your own invisibility shield! This is an improved version of the shields that several YouTubers made in 2020 using Lenticular Lens sheets.

After the video for this project went live, the shield used in the video was raffled off to raise money for a non-profit dedicated to fighting hunger – an invisible problem.

My role in this project

I love the Harry Potter series as much as the next person, and the opportunity to make a real life invisibility shield was more fun than I could resist!

In the press

The Invisibility Shield project was a highlighted project on the Instructables homepage and newsletter, and was also featured in BoingBoing and other fine online media outlets.
