Apart from the Howler that Ron Weasley got from his mother and Albus Dumbledore's Elder Wand, the Invisibility Cloak is another cool thingamajig from the Harry Potter series.
And now, the cloak is an actual thing in the muggle world.

Green screen technology
Originally a product by UK online gift store Wow! Stuff, the cloak actually works because of a camera app.

Retails for RM389
Being invisible doesn't come cheap, though.
The product currently retails for RM389 (S$126.68) at Typo outlets in Malaysia.
While the invisibility cloak isn't available at Typo Singapore's website, it seems that it will retail for S$129.99 here.
