The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) generally named as drones, has generated lots of controversy in recent years. Drones use thermal imaging sensors to find and lock onto a target. Their use has resulted in civilian causalities, as well as, they are increasingly being used for home surveillance. The designer Adam Harvey consider drones to be a blatant invasion of privacy. Hence, he has designed a new clothing line “stealth war” to combat the drone surveillance.
The idea of this product came into the mind of Harvey when he was doing research on thermal imaging. He bought a thermal imaging camera and started testing with different solutions to make the heat signature of a body disappear. He found that metal coverings can block the heat signature of a body from thermal imaging sensors. “This is a very simple solution to a rather complicated problem,” Adam Harvey said.
