Hi-tech pants, open source design

I recently came across some cool pants (created by Distilled Clothing, a San Francisco-based men’s fashion line) which block potentially harmful Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMF blocker) like those caused by radiation used by mobile phones.

According to Distilled, “The jury may still be out on whether Electro Magnetic Fields from mobile phones hurt us but phones are legally allowed to emit 1.6 watts per kilogram of radio frequency and one might prefer some insurance. Hence this pant with copper and nickel plated pocket bags that block potentially harmful radiation.

The EMF Blocker pant design pattern has been open sourced by Distilled and is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License

Some photos of the EMF Blocker pant (courtesy mattymerrill’s photostream) are shown below:






Like the tagline “Protect yourself and your future progeny” 🙂

    Biju: You know EM radiation doesn’t emanate only from phones. What about wi-fi, microwaves, etc.? These pants are solely meant to protect your fruit’n’nuts. 😉
