New York-based artist Adam Harvey has designed anti-surveillance clothing to foil government snoopers. We've posted about Harvey previous types of camouflage with his face dazzle.

In the spirit of fooling cameras -- and messing with surveillance -- Harvey has now come out in a set of hoodies and scarves that block thermal radiation from the infrared scanners drones use. Wearing the fabric would make that part of the body look black to a drone, so the image would appear like disembodied legs. He also designed a pouch for cell phones that shields them from trackers by blocking the radio signals the phone emits. For those airport X-ray machines, he has a shirt with a printed design that blocks the radiation from one's heart.
