Invisibility Cloaks are not magic anymore to scientists. The do not work like in Harry Potter yet, but some experiments already showed that waves can be "bent" around objects making them invisible.
In the future buildings could be "hidden" from earthquakes. Researchers form the Manchester University, UK, released a study that proposes an interesting solution for earthquake proofing of buildings. There have been some experiments in the recent past that demonstrate cloaking of objects from certain wave length. We are still far away from having a Potter style invisibility cloak, but in limited conditions this works.

The study proposes to use a rubber barrier that would bend the shockwaves from an earthquake around the building, leaving the structure unharmed. This sounds like an awesome idea to me.
