At Last, the Anti-Drone Hoodie

By on April 12, 2013

Because one drone strike can ruin your whole day, New York-based designer Adam Harvey has created what he calls the “anti-drone hoodie,” currently on display at a London exhibit titled “Stealth Wear.”

Actually, the real concern isn’t military drones, it’s surveillance drones operated by law enforcement and private companies — some estimates say that there will be 20,000 of those in the skies over the U.S. within 15 years. The hoodie is made using metallic threads, and it’s supposed to reflect heat, thereby hiding the wearer from the thermal imaging spy cameras on all these drones.

It’s also extremely fashionable, as seen in this concept art from Harvey’s site:


While it may look like it wouldn’t offer any camouflage against a midriff-seeking drone, that apparently doesn’t matter; as devoted tinfoil-hat wearers will tell you, it’s most important to protect the head.
