I’m Alex and I am the co-inventor of the Invisicloak. While working with Jacob we came up with the Invisicloak. On our blog page you can see our poster, thumbnail sketches, storyboard, and commercial.
My invention is the Inviscloak. The Invisicloak is a cloak that turns you invisible by refracting the light around you. With this invention you can pull awesome pranks on your friends or enemies. This incredible invention can be yours for $365.12 + Shipping and Handling and tax.
It was difficult to come up with an idea for our invention because Jacob and I both have different interests. It took us about 10 minutes to settle on the Invisicloak. We chose this idea because it was a mix of both of our interests.
This process has been long and difficult. After finally settling on an idea we then had to make thumbnail sketches that would be like mini-posters for our invention. The thumbnail had to include a picture, the name of the invention, what it does, and the price. Next, we made a poster for our invention. This was extremely challenging because Jacob was absent for three days in a row, but insisted that he should do the coloring because he was much neater and had good markers. So I was stuck doing nothing for three days. I think the poster came out good.
I wrote our script while Jacob was out. Our script described what our invention did, how much it costs, and why you should buy it. It also included a prank that you could pull on your friends or enemies with the Invisicloak.
I also did the storyboard while Jacob was gone. The first shot would be me putting on the cloak and becoming invisible. This was an establishing shot. Our next shot was me talking, but I was not in the picture because I had the cloak on and was invisible. This was also an establishing shot. The next shot was me pulling on Jacob he would spill his water, and then he thinks someone pushed him, then he realized no one was there. This was a pan shot. The next shot was me taking off the cloak after the prank. This was a medium shot.
The video was my favorite part. It was very windy and difficult to hear the person talking. To solve this we moved the person talking closer to the camera. We had to take at least 25 shots even though we only needed 5. I would have chosen a different day to shot when the weather was better.
I have really enjoyed this project. I have found that it is easier to work with a small group. Coming up with an invention is a long and difficult process, but it pays off in the end. I cannot wait to finish the project. Below is our storyboard, thumbnail, poster, and video.

PATENT FOR THE INVISICLOAK
The Invisicloak is a one of a kind product that turns you invisible. It refracts the light around you to make you invisible. It looks like an average robe that comes in many colors. This idea was chosen because it was a mix of both the inventors’ interests. It has three important parts the hood, jagged edges, and body. It also has many possible side effects.
The Invisicloak can refract the light around you to make you invisible. This appears to be just your average cloak, but it has powers beyond its years. You will be able to turn yourself invisible whenever you want. You can pull a prank on your friends or enemies. It also has many other uses such as sneaking out, running around doing whatever you’re not supposed to do with no one noticing, and stealing something.
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
This is a piece of clothing that does much more than people think. It looks like an ancient medieval robe. It comes in black, white, or grey.
This was invented to give kids entertainment. It has many uses and features that would keep kids entertain for hours on end. This idea was chosen because it was a mix of both of the inventor’s interests. Both of us agreed that this would be a creative and useful product. This is a one of a kind invention.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
This cloak turns you invisible the second you put it on. It was invented to keep kids entertained. The cloak won’t just work for anyone you need to believe it will work, and then you will see what it does. However, because you are invisible nobody else will see you. It has many uses that can entertain kids as well as adults (i.e. pranking a friend or enemy, automatically winning hide and go seek, sneaking around whenever you want, and anything else you should not be doing.) One of the most impressive parts of this is that if someone runs into where you are while you have the cloak on they don’t feel anything.
DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
That is the drawing of a fully assembled Invisicloak. The hood (fig. 1) is the most important part of the invention. It has the powers to turn you invisible. The body (fig. 2) is meant to fit snug tight on your body. The jagged edges on the arms and bottom (fig. 3) are used to try to keep only your body inside the cloak.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
There is nothing to compare this invention to. It is the first of its kind and most likely the last. It contains three important parts. The body of the cloak is meant to cover your body. The arms and bottom of the cloak are jagged to help the user put the cloak on and keep only the user in the cloak. The hood is the most important part of the cloak. The hood is what activates the cloaks powers. Once you put the hood on the cloak turns everything the cloak covers invisible. Hence, the cloak is meant to fit the user snug tight in order to ensure that no parts of nature go missing once the cloak is used. However, there are a few side effects to this product [i.e. invisible pants syndrome (invisible pants syndrome is when you take your cloak off and it appears that you have no pants on), lack of visibility when viewing other mammals, loss of brain syndrome, when you take off the cloak you appear to be missing a head, and many many more.] More specific instructions come with the product.
