But we hate to break it to you, Harry Potter fans, the "cloaking spray," is a well-executed farce.

"[It] sprays on clear and dries invisible. Once dry, it guides light around an object, causing it to become transparent," reads the video caption."
Apparently this is a yearly tradition for the school of Engineering. A representative from the department tipped us off to this April Fools' prank from last year.
