i want a machine to make a guy invisible. Answered

.ok guys my brother is a film maker and is working on a sci fi movie in which a guy is turned invisible by some nasty russian made device the device is a prop (of course!!) but i want it to look the business. im thinking steel box, big lights cyryllic warnings..big buttons..a launch style key....any more ideas :)? id like it to do stuff if i could
ive seen one or two doomsday devices on the net.not bad, but..........
.but im thinking about briefcase size...maybe with an osciliscope in the lid..i dunno...help me o oracles of the weird


All the best sci-fi gizmos have blinky lights. Maybe a row of LEDs that light up to show the machine powering up and then flash and go out as the weapon discharges?

thats good...maybe we foley in a sound and a higer pitch one as each led lights up....hmmmm

A couple of big copper electrodes for him to hold onto and shudder whilst turning invisible?

hey kiteman i like that. on big red cables coiling back to a metal box with the big red button and a key switch maybe....hmmmm

As electronics shrinks into clothes you wear it can present the image
that someone could see without you being there.


You can actually make a cabinet that will make your subject seem to disappear.

They stand behind a sheet of glass at 45 degrees across inside the box - slowly dim the lights on the person's side of the glass, and brighten them on the audience's side, and the subject fades from view, then ducks out of a trapdoor in the back.
