Abstract: Have you ever thought of making visible things invisible, just like the Harry Potter? Have you ever thought how does one supersede backgrounds and add effects in a movie? The cloak was magical and invisible in Harry Potter, the movie. As we know there is no magic and no invisible cloak which exists in the world. It’s all about the graphics tricks. The concept of an invisibility cloak is a mixture of science, fantasy, and the collective imagination. This paper helps to create one’s own ‘Invisibility Cloak’.It will make use of Python and OpenCV module specifically targeting Image Processing and Image Segmentation to create a false sense of invisibility in the frame. It will explore how an object of a specific color or texture can be manipulated using the OpenCV library of python. To achieve this, initially we’ll be capturing and storing the backdrop frame . Thereafter we’ll be identifying the red coloured fabric by making use of the above mentioned algorithms. Then we’ll segment out the red colored fabric by generating a mask and then finally , we’ll generate the final augmented(magical) output to create Invisibility cloak. These steps are discussed deeper in the paper.
