    complete with glowing lights

    Do your homework AFP, infra-red rays are invisible to human eyes but not to cameras. You don't see beams of light come out of your remote control when you change channel do you?

    " However, the large plastic structures, complete with glowing lights and a sizeable power pack, may make the wearer somewhat conspicuous to the naked eye. "

    LOL, yes, I would say so. Unless they use them strictly in Otaku areas such as Akiba.

    What part of "NEAR infra-red" are you having trouble with?

    have lines of lights that emit near infra-red rays

    The product is never going to be successful. Anyone foolish enough to buy and wear these is sticking a big, flashing light over their head that announces to security people, "I AM A SUSPICIOUS CHARACTER BECAUSE I AM TRYING TO THWART YOUR SECURITY CAMERAS." Someone wearing these into an airport can guarantee they will be pulled aside for a personal body search - every time.
