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....

WHAT forum am I on????
Newsflash - targets identified as enemy combatants do not necessarily need to have their faces identified. Thermal imaging of their lower extremities is sufficient, as a Hellfire that takes out your knees will pretty much take out the rest of you too.
Doesn't everybody have one?
"...they won't even take a second look"
"I am wearing a silver hoodie that stops just below the nipples."
The question is: "What did Dee Dee say on the night when she first met Trayvon?"
Lots of people here throw around the term “Hellfire” as if the federal government has an endless supply of those $55,000 missiles. They do not. They do not have enough missiles of any kind to take out 1% of the people that would be in rebellion against them should it come to that. If missiles could win wars there’d have been no reason to spend spend 10 years in Vietnam and Iraq and going on 12 years in Afghanistan.
What is that thing moslems wear on their heads??? oh, wait, a rag...
Cool, and I could ditch this tinfoil hat, too!
The heat doesn’t go away...it is just reflected down so you look like a blooming onion when it roils from under your fish tarp
You need full length mithril.
Do you know what capabilities the butterfly drones have? Can they carry out medical assassinations, for instance? So you’re out weeding your garden, think you’ve been bitten by a mosquito, and keel over dead from what will look to the entire world as if it was a heart attack?
There’s a new bumper sticker: “One Nation Under
Surveillance.” The hoodie needs to be redesigned to make room for pointy tinfoil hats. Everything considered, I may take a bigger silver investment position tomorrow.
The drones will target short ugly hoodies. The pix explain why.
Well, I’ve always pictured you coated in uncured squirrel skins.
