Lisa Kori and Caitlin Morris, design researchers at the Italian communications center Fabrica, created a line of high-fashion accessories that can shield your thoughts from mind-reading scans.

Lisa-Kori-Anti-NIS-Hat

These couture adornments carry alert wearers to Neuro-Imaging Surveillance (NIS) scans. This technology, currently used for medical purposes, can scan the brain to see which portions are active, which may betray what a person is thinking or feeling.

The anti-NIS accessories have built-in sensors to detect brain scans but they cannot block the scan without heavier, less subtle technology. Instead, the pieces use lights, bone-conduced sound, or electric shocks to momentarily distract the user, thus preventing the scan from seeing their previous mental state. Kori and Morris’s anti-NIS line made its debut at the Futures10 exhibition during the Wearable Futures festival in London.
