Jeans Made That Will Prevent Digital Pick Pocketing
A pair of jeans containing material that blocks wireless signals is being developed in conjunction with anti-virus firm Norton.
The trousers are intended to stop thieves hacking into radio frequency identification (RFID) tagged passports or contactless payment cards.
According to security experts this type of theft is a growing problem.
The jeans are designed by online clothing company Betabrand and use a silver-based material to block signals.
They are due to go on sale in February.
Security software maker Norton teamed up with San Francisco-based Betabrand in October to make the jeans and a blazer. The jeans will retail at $151 (£96) and the blazer at $198.
