Trident Gum Releases “Radio Frequency Shielding Fabric” Fashion Line

So Trident — yes, the same company that makes the gum — just released a new fashion line featuring radio frequency shielding fabric.

The angle on the clothes is more than just technology privacy. By branding this line as “Keep Life in Focus” – the emphasis is more on preserving your mental health, spending more time with your family and friends, finding that nice zen place where the rest of the world is all noise. Noisy technology, noisy sensors, noisy data collection trying to distract us from the world.

But wait! You know what will draw as back to a sane and happy place?

Interesting to have an entire dress or coat made out of this fabric — sure there’s a bit of a groovy Jetson steampunk vibe going on there, but RF-shielding fabric is typically made into pockets or purses where wallets or phones can be conveniently stored. Would we be wearing RFID or RF-emitting devices on the rest of our bodies? Or maybe it’s just a bolder statement about privacy and mental health–heck, even little pockets don’t cut it anymore, we should also shield our entire selves!

The exhibition, Focus: Life in Gear, just started on March 28th and runs until April 6th in Toronto. Curious to see who else will be there, and what folks think of the clothes.

  1. I love these. I would totally wear some of them.

    If you like the idea of signal-blocking fabrics as clothing, you should also take a look at Stealth Wear (by the OFF Pocket guys!)

  3. I like your idea of designing clothing using radio frequency shielding fabric. I had purchase one for my wife during her pregnancy to avoid any radio wave from electronic gadget and hand set as well. Pretty cool because it helps to protect my baby which is my utmost important.
