However, with popularity comes scrutiny and it did not take long for the video to be exposed as a hoax.

Chinese web users are enthused over a new product that claimed to be a China-made ‘quantum of invisibility cloak’.

Chen Shiqu, deputy head of Criminal Investigation Department at Ministry of Public Security, shared the video claiming the cloak could be useful to the military.

He said: ‘This is a quantum technology-made cloth that is made of transparent material, it can reflect the light wave around the person who wears it so it can make the person disappear.
