The Jammer Coat by Coop Himmelb(l)au is the perfect garment to wear when trying to disappear off the grid for a few days. According to the company, "the oversized tech garment enables its user to disappear: Google cannot find you anymore."

Considering that the current age is one filled with technological devices such as cell phones and iPads that people carry around on a daily basis, it's difficult not to just disappear off the map. Having a wearable piece of tech that could block unwanted strangers picking up one's location would very much be of value to certain people, and even for military purposes. The only downside is that it looks like someone is wearing an oversized blanket, so while signals may be blocked, one still would be noticed on the street.
