Business suit tailored to reflect phone radiation

Something more stylish to go with your tinfoil hat

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

If you’re worried that mobile phone and Bluetooth signals could be doing you harm, then you can now block them out and still remain a dedicated follower of fashion.

Clothing company Remus has cut a gents' suit with an interwoven metal frame that’s claimed to reflect Bluetooth and mobile phone radiation, despite the jury still being undecided about the dangers such signals may or may not pose to our grey matter.

However, a spokesman at one of the suit’s stockists told Register Hardware that the so-called E-Blocker suit doesn’t mean the wearer’s mobile phone reception will be hampered. He said that the suit is “purely designed to stop any potential radiation” and is suitable for “someone who’s a little sceptical about the risk of such rays”.

As an added bonus, this fashionable Faraday Cage is also crease- and stain-resistant - but you may want to think twice before wearing it in the rain.

Dry-clean only...

Paranoid conspiracy theorists with a penchant for style can pick-up their hi-tech suit now through retailer Douglas & Grahame Ltd for around £275 (€348/$537).
