OFF Pocket Phone Case Blocks Wireless Signals: It Ain’t Too Much for Me to Jam
August 5th, 2013
Designer Adam Harvey is obsessed with privacy. He’s come up with clothes that hide you from thermal sensors and x-ray machines, and an anti-paparazzi bag that ruins pictures. Recently he teamed up with materials consultant Johanna Bloomfield to make the OFF Pocket, a case that cuts your phone off from the world.
The interior of the OFF Pocket is lined with “metalized fibers”, acting as a Faraday cage that blocks Wi-Fi, Cellular, Bluetooth and GPS signals. It’s your phone’s tinfoil hat. Or tinfoil straitjacket.
Make sure your connection is secure and pledge at least $85 (USD) on Kickstarter to get an OFF Pocket as a reward. Or you could just power off your phone.
