I'm calling BS on his claim here.
If it's bending visible light, isn't it also plausible it could bend infrared light? In fact, the longer wavelength in the IR portion of the electromagnetic spectrum should make it easier to refract than visible light. How does the 2nd law of thermodynamics even apply here? The cloak doesn't stop an object from radiating heat into its environment, it simply bends the electromagnetic radiation (light, whether in the visible or infrared spectrum).
