I am wearing a silver hoodie that stops just below the nipples. Or, if you prefer, a baggy crop-top with a hood. The piece this is fashion, so it has to be a "piece" is one of a kind, a prototype. It has wide square shoulders and an overzealous zip that does up right to the tip of my nose.
It does not, it's fair to say, make its wearer look especially cool. But that's not really what this hoodie is about. It has been designed to hide me from the thermal imaging systems of unmanned aerial surveillance vehicles drones. And, as far as I can tell, it's working well.
"It's what I call anti-drone," explains designer Adam Harvey. "That's the sentiment. The material in the anti-drone clothing is made of silver, which is reflective to heat and makes the wearer invisible to thermal imaging."
The "anti-drone hoodie" was the central attraction of Harvey's Stealth Wear exhibition, which opened in central London in January, billed as a showcase for "counter-surveillance fashions". It is a field Harvey has been pioneering for three years now, making headlines in the tech community along the way.
It began in 2010 with Camoflash, an anti-paparazzi handbag that responds to the unwanted camera flashes with a counter-flash of its own, replacing the photograph's intended subject with a fuzzy orb of bright white light.
Then came his thesis project CV Dazzle, a mix of bold makeup and hairstyling based on military camouflage techniques....

Well, at least I get to stop wearing aluminum foil.
There used to be a product red out that would block infrared so you could not be detected by heat imaging devices.
Well, that needs to be banned.
That sombrero is the perfect disguise! Be sure to add a backpack for full effect.
...and i was gonna send this $50 to the freepathon...
Now she is hot!! Unfortunately, the IR camera will see her just fine. There is real stuff out there if you know where to look.
News flash! Most modern CCD cameras can be bloom blinded with IR. The hoodie is meant only to protect from face recognition identity software and cameras, not to keep you from being a glowing blob on the background and in the reticle.
Plus the added bonus of repelling both vampires and werewolves.
So true not to mention there are plans available on the internet to construct an EMP gun that will disable a drone. Of course I would never do that.
I want one!!
Able Baker Charlie...is that you Josephine?????
