Make yourself invisible
Reported in Science Daily News: An Event Cloak: "The burglar would ... split all the light approaching the safe into two parts: "before" and "after," with the "before" part sped up and the "after" part slowed down. ... This would create a brief period of darkness during which the burglar could enter the scene ... There is no obvious reason why such a cloak could not be achieved quite soon, perhaps even within a few years."
We're half way there. Light is picked up at the back of this cloak, runs around the side, and is released from the front. The small green figures really are behind him.
