Digital disguise is the height of fashion

Wouldn't you like to be invisible, sometimes?
Dateline: 11 December 2025

Silicon Streetwear has launched a new range of fashion items for the privacy conscious. It’s called Silicon Secrets, and keeps you safe from hackers and scanners.

Your body has a natural aura; your heartbeat, skin temperature, the blood coursing through your veins; all combine to create a unique biometric signature, that identifies you as you. But you also have a digital aura; your wearables and devices, some of which may be implants. Your wireless aura not only identifies you, but reports on your movements, and makes you reachable at all times.

Which is hardly ideal, when you want to be incognito. The new Silicon Secrets fabric contains interwoven digital nanofibers that act like a Faraday cage – dispersing and scattering any wireless signals and blocking radio frequencies. Drop your phone into a pocket, and you’re instantly off the grid.

These days, when we can tweet with little more than a thought, or pay with the wave of a hand, you also want convenient privacy, without having to wear an Anonymous mask. The Advanced Personal Privacy (APP) built into the Secrets digisuit deflects millimeter wavelengths, so your biometric data is also safe. Even facial recognition is impossible if you’re wearing the hoodie, or a scarf.

So now you can go about your private business, dressed in ordinary looking clothes, knowing no one can track or call you; unless you want them to. Secrets fabric is available for curtains too, keeping your home safe from more than just prying eyes. Think of it as a digital cloaking device. Hey presto! and you’re invisible – digitally, that is.

There’s only one drawback to wearing Secrets digital clothing; when you go through an airport scanner, you have to take it all off!
