Blokket Blocks RFID / Wifi Signals
Want a way to get “off the grid” and look good doing it?
Here it is
Identity theft is a constant concern in the digital age, and the inclusion of RFID chips in just about everything from cell phones to passports unfortunately opens up another avenue for would-be thieves to lift your data. The only way to really know you were secure would be to block all wireless frequencies from reaching your IDs and gadgets. ThinkGeek’s solution is the Blokket, a small pouch designed to can hold mobile devices or RFID-chipped IDs and block them from receiving any incoming wireless signals.
Made from a mesh of nylon and silver, the Blokket works like a mini Faraday cage, isolating whatever’s inside from outside connections. At 8″ x 5.75″ (20 x 15 cm) it’s large enough to hold a cell phone along with chipped credit cards, IDs, passports, and such. The fabric is said to be capable of blocking 99.7% of radio frequencies, so the odds of any shady characters snatching your data are slim to none.
ThinkGeek is currently selling the Blokket Signal Blocking Phone Pocket for US$24.99.
