The universe of Harry Potter thrives because it's a group of really vivacious kids living in a wonderfully and manically magical world existing side-by-side with our boring Muggle lives. But the lines are already starting to blur between Harry's reality and our own. It's no longer tea, crumpets and 9-to-5 lives for us. Just yesterday we learned that Quidditch has become a slightly less airborne Muggle reality with Ivy League kids holding intercollegiate matches, but there's another rift between the world of Hogwarts and our own -- news that scientists are working on the logistics of invisibility cloaks.
That's right, folks. Without the use of magic, a group of scientists have developed a material which they believe is the first step towards creating an invisibility clothing.
