In this episode I met three crazy researchers from KULeuven (Belgium) who found a method to fool surveillance cameras and stay hidden just by holding a special t-shirt. 
We discussed about the technique they used and some consequences of their findings.

They published their paper on Arxiv and made their source code available at
