It seems that a company is making and selling Faraday suits to remain stealthy when hunting.

HECS-HECS STEALTHSCREEN

That just seems a bit over the top for me. However I did read that the Military is looking at these suits for special Ops.


Fourteen days then quiet about who is running for what.

Your scepticism is well-founded.

From TFA:
Science has now proven that some animals have the ability to detect faint electromagnetic signals

Wikipedia:
Electroreception is the biological ability to perceive natural electrical stimuli. It has been observed only in aquatic or amphibious animals, since water is a much better conductor than air.

So, those suits would be just the thing for keen frog-hunters.

Without products like that on the market, we'd have to give up the proverb "A fool and his money are soon parted." The company is really doing us a favor by allowing us to continue using our traditional proverbs.

One story goes that the suit could offer some protection from sharks. So if some people get into a shark cage, would that not also block the emissions? After reading the first article I feel like I am at a sporting goods convention. Doe scent, Bear Bait, Turkey calls.

But... but... a faraday cage needs to be grounded to block EMF. Are there giant spikes on the bottom of your shoes attached to the cage?

MMKK, I can't tell if you are being sarcastic, but a Faraday cage does not need need to be grounded to work. This is a fun video that may explain it:

Holy-wha! Great video!

And, no, I wasn't being sarcastic, I thought a Faraday cage had to be grounded to shield you from RF. Not sarcastic, just uneducated, I guess. [blush]
