Nanotech gadget suit is a must-have in geek chic

Abstract:
Death metal t-shirts, beards, ponytails and sneakers used to be the lot of the much-maligned nerd. But from today, suave techies can cut a dashing, more refined figure in a sleek, tailored gadget suit that can block out Bluetooth hackers and shield the body from radiation.

The new range of Inspector Gadget tailoring - entitled the Novonics E-blocker line - is being introduced to department stores and gents outfitters by Remus Uomo.

Like most wool-mix travel suits, the E-blocker range is crease and stain resistant, but is termed by Remus Uomo as the last word in functional fashion.

The suit's pocket lining is made from specially coated yarn that forms an electromagnetic barrier to fend off mobile phone and Bluetooth rays.

Remus Uomo spokesperson, Sam Livingstone, said it can appeal to two distinct groups of people - health-conscious types who fear the effects of mobile phone radiation on their body and security conscious individuals who either don't wish to be contactable or fear they might be Blue-jacked via Bluetooth-wielding data thieves.
