You know how it is, the times they are a changing, and taking old familiar comforts with them. Now, the tinfoil hat crowd has officially been relegated to the antique bin, next to the Poloroid cameras and 45rpm records.
For members of and visitors to New York City's New Museum of Contemporary Art, they can now purchase what might actually be the world's first "anti-drone scarf."
Absolutely perfect gift giving idea for those of you whose paranoia hasn't quite made it to the point where you have three and a half miles of string connecting that theory you have about the cancellation of Veronica Mars, and how it's totally tied to the trouble in Syria...
The $450 scarf ($382.50 for members) was designed from metalized silk to mask the wearer's thermal signature. That way, the pesky drones won't be able to drop a bomb on you when you are perusing the local farmer's market for a decent tomato. That's how you can tell this bullshit is contemporary art- it's overpriced as fuck and dubiously functional.
Of course, how will the drone differentiate between someone trying to mask their thermal signature and some pretentious asshole wearing a $400 tinfoil comforter? So many questions left...
