Clothing Company Creates Pocket that can Take User “Off the Grid”

Have you ever wondered if the government is tracking your every move all through your cell phone or other mobile devices? Well, have no fear because an Australian clothing company has created a new shirt that will take you off the grid and conceal you from “Big Brother.”

According to Wired, this button down shirt will feature an attachable pocket that will shield GPS, WIFI, block cell service and all other radio frequency signals. This is accomplished by the metal fibers that are contained inside.

The clothing line is based off the George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984” and is a solution to the post-Snowden world we live in after he leaked NSA documents. This pocket also known as the “UnPocket” can also be worn on regular clothing as well. Designed by The Affair, founder Zoltan Csaki, a hard-core Orwell fan, and from where he got the inspiration.

I think that in this day and age, we put everything on the Internet for the world to see as well as being constantly connected to each other via our cell phones. This is a perfect solution to anyone who would like to a little quiet time or likes to have some privacy in his or her life. But at the same time, I think it would be just as easy and more cost effective to just simply turn off your phone completely.

Do you think you would want to become completely off the grid? Comment below and give us your opinion!
