Anti-virus service provider Norton has helped develop a pair of jeans capable of blocking wireless signals, designed to protect credit cards and passports from being remotely hacked via radio frequency identification (RFID) signals.

The jeans were designed in conjunction with fashion retailer Betabrand and uses silver-lined pockets to form a wireless-proof ‘Faraday cage’ that protect against RFID signals. The duo are also offering a blazer, integrating the same technology. Both items, priced $151 and $198 respectively, go on sale next February.
