With Google and Facebook in a race to see who can get the most satellites and drones in the air, some privacy advocates are worried about how personal privacy will be affected.
But not to worry if you are one of those with concerns — the Privacy Gift Shop is offering a ‘Stealth Wear’ collection for those who don’t want to be seen from above.
“Stealth Wear is a collection of garments that shields against thermal imaging, a surveillance technology used widely by military drones to target people,” reads the Privacy Gift Shop website.
The collection includes an anti-drone hoodie, an anti-drone hijab and an anti-drone burqa.
The hoodie, which is metal-plated to shield against thermal surveillance used by military drones, retails for $350. The hoodie, which is lined in black nylon, is currently sold out.
The hijab, which is also metal-plated, retails for $550 while the burqa costs $2,500. Both have black silk interiors and are available to order.
