Do they work?

The tin foil hat, you know about them you may have even seen them, but do they work? It seems that in 2005 some students at MIT had some time on their hands and decided to answer that very question.


It has long been suspected that the government has been using satellites to read and control the minds of certain citizens. The use of aluminum helmets has been a common guerrilla tactic against the government's invasive tactics. Surprisingly, these helmets can in fact help the government spy on citizens by amplifying certain key frequency ranges reserved for government use. In addition, none of the three helmets we analyzed provided significant attenuation to most frequency bands.
