Harry Potter fans may often wish that they could have some of the magical everyday creations that are available to their favorite Harry Potter characters. Surely, an invisibility cloak (like the one Harry Potter often used at J.K Rowling’s mythical magic school, Hogwarts) that renders everything it covers unseen could help a lot of Harry Potter kids get into misdemeanors quite successfully.
Or when it gets a little chilly, how many Harry Potter fans wished they could have a nice mug of hot Butterbeer, which Harry and his friends enjoyed during the cold winter times?
Well now that scientists have developed new lens which will allow objects to become invisible, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort is now serving hot Butterbeer, both those dreams can now become a reality for Harry Potter lovers.
The invisibility device called the Rochester Cloak, was created by scientists at the University of Rochester. According to the Independent, the device is made by four ordinary lenses and can make objects look like they are invisible when viewed in a number of different angles.
“This cloak bends light and sends it through the center of the device and is the first device that we know of that can do three-dimensional, continuously multi-directional cloaking, which works for transmitting rays in the visible spectrum. ” said Joseph Choi, a researcher who wrote about the device.
The concept of an invisibility cloak first appeared in J.K. Rowling’s book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. According to the Independent, the Rochester Cloak has a property that makes it possible to be scaled up — meaning that the dream of creating an invisibility cloak, like the one J.K. Rowling describes is one step closer to reality.
And what of the hot Butterbeer?
People Magazine reported that the hot version of the drink made its debut at Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter on Friday. People also said that Universal Orlando’s man-made magical resort that is visited by loyal Harry Potter fans always offered “regular” and “frozen” versions of the drink created by J.K. Rowling.
But now creators have a top-secret recipe that its Universal Orlando’s website says has been fine-tuned just the right way to make it perfect as a hot treat.
“Millions of Butterbeers have been sold each year since The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade opened in June 2010,” the Universal Orlando’s website reported.
An Inquisitr report published in July of this year said that J.K. Rowling has written three books since she ended her Harry Potter series.
Does news of these two real-life Harry Potter creations make fans feel any closer to the magical world created by J.K. Rowling? For true Harry Potter fans, tasting the hot Butterbeer and seeing the Rochester Cloak must be a real-life adventure worth having.
