On a night out, you might worry about having your smartphone lifted from your back pocket. When in fact, what you should be worried about is having it stripped of data. Mobile devices are way easier to hack than regular computers and that makes them an easy target for digital pickpockets.
But now, to help you keep your data safe, Hiut Denim Co. have come up with the idea of a hack-proof pocket. Developed jointly with fabric technologists Avery Dennison, the pocket is lined with a woven metal foil. This provides an effective barrier against the electromagnetic waves that Bluetooth, RFID, NFC need to work.
This new feature is soon to be tested by customers with a view to launching next year. And at a projected price of £175 it’ll be worth putting your hand in your pocket for.
