We study an invisibility cloak with a twin cavity, simulated by a plane algebraic curve- hippopede. The cloaked region, which looks like eight for some sets of geometric parameters, is expanded from one single point. Using a geometric transformation approach, we demonstrate that the material parameters of cloaking layer can be exactly determined. Numerical simulations show that the incoming rays pass in and out the cloaking region twice, and return to their original trajectory outside the curved cloak. A notable feature is that the cloaking region has two hollow regions in which two objects can be hidden at one time and that they could not perceive each other.
