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.

    Is this also ‘more healthy’ when males put a mobile phone into their jeans’ pocket?

    To hell with it. Those jeans cost more than what my credit cards worth. You can dream up the stupidest things, sell them for what you want and some people will happily buy them. Like they say, there’s one born every minute.

    Hahaha, nice one Norton. You tried, and that’s what counts.
