A suit that blocks out the waves emitted by cell phones was developed by french fashion brand 'Smuggler' and the 'XLIM Research Institute'.

Over three years, the suit was developed to protect your body from the potentially dangerous electromagnetic waves around you. With a suit developed by a fashion company in collaboration with a research organization, you're sure to look dapper while staying safe.

The suit is made of threads interwoven with metals that block out the waves. Nickel, aluminium and steel were used to imbue the suit with its cellphone blocking powers. The suit is claimed to be able to block up to 90 percent of the electromagnetic waves around you.

Though cell phone waves have only been labelled as a possible carcinogenic risk by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the suit may still have long term benefits.
