"The increasingly vast suite of surveillance tools available to state authorities has certainly given privacy advocates something to bristle at. In an exhibition launching this week, NYC-based artist Adam Harvey and fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield are demonstrating fashion’s potential to thwart surveillance by state actors via accessories like a heat-cloaking anti-drone hoodie and scarf.
The exhibition will show off several garments designed to either stymie or protect against various privacy-probing surveillance technologies, including a shirt with an X-ray-deflecting patch over the heart, an “off pocket” that zeroes out your phone’s signal when it’s inside, and the aforementioned hoodie and scarf, both engineered to conceal the body’s thermal signature that can be picked up by the IR sensors built into many surveillance cameras and drones."

LOL If you believe all the "doom porn", when "they" see a house they can't see into, it'll be door-kicking time...

First and foremost, we shouldn't need these things to protect ourselves...
FROM OUR OWN GOV'T!
Does anyone else understand that idea?
Sure, these "hoodies" and "cloaks" are a fine idea.
As I'm sure the technology exists to make these products useful.
But citizens should not need to worry about IR detection!
We pay taxes to our gov't to defend us from terrorists, right?
We aren't paying them to spy on us...or are we?
(I know the answers to these questions...do you?)
Are we going to be terrorized?!
