A shimmer was a cloaking device that allowed its owner to change their appearance. The Eleventh Doctor once described it as "an all-in-one disguise kit for aliens that don't look human". (TV: The End of Time, COMIC: Ripper's Curse)
Appearance and function Edit
Shimmer devices used by Vinvocci were disguised as wristwatches, which allowed them to avoid suspicion. While very effective, they were apparently uncomfortable to use. The Tenth Doctor could easily detect such a shimmer even when not looking directly at it, as he did when he deactivated Rossiter's shimmer. (TV: The End of Time)
Rossiter and Addams picked up a signal from a piece of medical equipment and used shimmers to work undetected for Joshua Naismith. The Doctor deactivated them with his sonic screwdriver. (TV: The End of Time)
