Human Spontaneous Involuntary Invisibility refers to becoming invisible unknowingly without any involvement of ones will, for some time which may range from fre minutes to hours.

A WOMAN NAMED Melanie in Ventura, California had a strange experience while sitting on her own living room sofa. While just staring at the wall, she became, she believes, invisible. Her husband walked around the house looking for her. He even walked right by her - just a few feet away - and did not see her. The episode lasted about 10 minutes, then suddenly she was visible again.

Donna Higbee is a researcher investigating in this regard.

this is not the only reported case, there have been many other such cases reported and recorded by researchers such as Donna Higbee ,investigating in this regard.For eg. Jannise in Minneapolis, Minnesota, who has had a number of invisibility experiences throughout her life. This one reported lasted longer than usual. As a teenager, she fell in with a group of friends who decided to see if they could actually steal something from a department store and not get caught. As luck would have it, the entire group was caught and taken into custody, including Jannise. They were taken to the police station and one by one were questioned; all, that is, except Jannise. Although she was standing right there, no one paid the slightest attention to her; not the police, the guards, or the office personnel. She finally just got up and walked out of the police station without ever being questioned or anyone attempting to stop her. When she later talked with her friends about what happened in the police station, "...they didn’t even recall me being taken into custody at the department store. Yet I rode in the police car with everyone else, and they thought I was still at the store." No one had seen her from the moment the police had arrived on the scene in the store until some time after she had walked out of the police station unhindered.

Patanjali, author of the Yoga-sutra, which is one of
the earliest treatises among the early Indian
writings, attempts to describe the process whereby
human invisibility occurred. He says that
concentration and meditation can make the body
imperceptible to other men, and a direct contact with
the light of the eyes no longer existing, the body
disappears. The light engendered in the eye of the
observer no longer comes into contact with the body
that has become invisible, and the observer sees
nothing at all.

Hinduism, around 700-300 BCE, we find the secret doctrines, called the Upanishads, which were written for students. Within the Upanishads, there is a section called the Yogatattva which gives the rich mystical philosophy of the discipline and theory of practice for attaining knowledge of the essence of God.

A serious student of raja yoga was taught that certain supernormal powers, called siddhas were a natural outcome of gaining mastery over one's mind and environment, and were used as valuable indications of the student's spiritual progress.

One of these yogic siddhas was human invisibility.

Well getting invisible by ones own effort is an old reported phenomeon but this is the issue of involuntary invisibility- a thirty-seven year old man, Peter in Gloucestershire, England, who was at a private party in 1987. He walked upstairs to use the bathroom and was followed by a woman who also wanted to use the bathroom. The woman motioned for him to go first and she stood outside the door to wait her turn. Peter used the bathroom, opened the door and walked out into the hallway, closing the door behind him. He went on down the stairs and walked over to some friends and started talking to them. They all ignored him completely. He though they were playing a joke on him, so he walked away and found his girlfriend and asked her for a cigarette. She, too, acted like she didn't see or hear him. Peter was getting angry by this time and thought the joke had gone too far. He decided to walk back upstairs and catch the woman coming out of the bathroom and ask her for a cigarette. "...I walked back up the stairs and, on reaching the bathroom landing, I came across the girl again who was standing outside the bathroom door, clearly still waiting for me to come out. When she saw me, her face dropped in surprise for clearly she thought that I was still in the bathroom." Peter returned to the party downstairs and everything was normal again and he was able to be seen and heard. When he questioned his friends and girlfriend as to why they had ignored him, they all swore that they had never seen or heard him. Obviously the woman upstairs had not seen him come out of the bathroom and go downstairs.

Conversion into Cloud
A man named John Macky, who was an early Masonic leader (the early Masons were believed to be an offshoot of the Rosicrucians) taught a method whereby any man could render himself invisible. Another offshoot of the Rosicrucian fraternity, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, left manuscripts describing the Ritual of Invisibility. These manuscripts talk about surrounding yourself with a shroud, which is described as looking like "a cloud." It is said that Madame Blavatsky, of the Theosophical Society, witnessed this invisibility for herself and was actually given the secret, thereafter accomplishing this for herself on several occasions in front of witnesses. The literature on the Spiritualists in the U.S. shows that there is no doubt they, too, knew about the cloud and its creation.

It means that in many ancient societies, there are historical evidences which show that these people practised certain rituals whereby they could convert a complete human being into a cloud which is a type or volunteered invisibility. This means human invisibility is not a new phenomenon.
