Project: RFID Pocket Replacement
Date: October 2005


RFID privacy issues have become a hot topic. As RFID tags become more pervasive, how does the consumer avoid being tracked? One easy way to subvert the technology is to build a homemade faraday cage around your RFID tags. The below project describes how the average person can rip out a pocket from a pair of jeans and replace it with a cotton like fabric which contains enough conductive material to block most RFID tag frequencies.

This project was created as a workshop for a DIY event Swap-O-Rama-Rama which takes place in NYC on Sunday, February 12th 2006.

The Project primarily consists of:

  1. 1 pair of jeans
  2. 1ft of NaturaShield Fabric
