Hoodie which turns into a Mask

[Media: Image]

Here in Britain, closed-circuit cameras are everywhere: the average Londoner is said to be photographed some 300 times a day. Equally ubiquitous are the signs that demand that you take off your hoodie's hood or your motorcycle crash-helmet so that it won't interfere with the universal surveillance.

Although I quite like the look of these hoodies, and the idea that they're for counter-surveillance, I doubt that people are actually going to use them properly. I showed these pictures to a couple of people before the post, and their first reactions were that these were for people who were going to try to break the law.

What do you think?
