New vest inflates when you receive Likes on Facebook

New vest inflates when you receive Likes on Facebook

We've reported on some odd items in the past, but this has to be one of the oddest (and also one of the most intriguing). A group of scientists at MIT have developed a new vest that you can link to your Facebook account. Why would you want to link a vest, of all things, to your Facebook account? Because when people "Like" something that you've posted, the vest automatically inflates.

Kuchofuku unveils air-conditioned pants with built-in fans

Kuchofuku unveils air-conditioned pants with built-in fans

How do you beat the summer heat? Most people would probably just try to stay hydrated or stand under some shade when outdoors, but Japanese company Kuchofuku has taken it a step further with its new fully air-conditioned pair of pants. In fact, Kuchofuku already has a range of other air-conditioned pieces of clothing, including an air-conditioned shirt and an air-conditioned cooling coat. So it only seems reasonable to add a nice pair of air-conditioned pants to complete the whole ensemble.

UD Replicas to re-release its replica Batman motorcycle suits

UD Replicas to re-release its replica Batman motorcycle suits

I have talked about the uber geeky and cool motorcycle suits that the UD Replicas company makes before. One of my all time favorites was the Tron suit that came out around the time the film was in theaters. One of the most popular suits of all time for the company was the Batman suit that was based on the newer film The Dark Knight. Those suits have so far sold out in two releases.

Canon and Invader Zim bring Occupy Wallstreet protests to the public eye

Canon and Invader Zim bring Occupy Wallstreet protests to the public eye

When it comes to protests, there's always one thing that'll keep you (and your mob) from succeeding in making the United States aware of your cause - protesting the news corporations. Over the past two (or so) weeks, there've been protesters in the streets of New York City in areas on and around Wall Street, this gathering named "Occupy Wallstreet" and called for all the way back in the July issue of Adbusters (an anti-consumerist magazine that I just so happen to have a copy of right here) and encouraged by the hackers at Anonymous soon afterword. These protests have been going on since the 17th of September, 2011, and continue to this day where one of the most important factors has come into play: branding.

NIKE Teases Separate 2015 Re-Release of 2011 Back to the Future Shoe, Power Laces intact [Video]

If there's one oddity that's been taking the tech world by storm over these past 72 hours or so, it's been the 2011 NIKE MAG shoe, straight out of the classic science fiction comedy film Back to the Future II. In this movie it's Michael J. Fox in his most recognizable role of his career, Marty McFly, sporting the "NIKE MAG" sneakers in all their futuristic glory. We've got full details now on a 2011 release of the shoe, including the awesome fact that proceeds will be going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation in the end - but today a whole new bombshell may well have nearly slipped right under our noses: a "lost scene" from the Back to the Future movies that portends another release of this legendary sneaker set in the future: September 8th, 2015 to be exact, where they'll include the most excellent "Power Laces" feature missing from the 2011 limited edition drop!

NIKE MAG Official Details Released in Full [Updated with Max Detail]

NIKE MAG Official Details Released in Full [Updated with Max Detail]

It's time for the "greatest shoe never made" to make its real life debut, and with the fact that they're being touted as precise replicas, down to "the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap." This should all bode well for the method in which the shoes will be released, that being 1500 limited-edition pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG, all of them auctioned off in the very near future on eBay with all net proceeds to go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for a future without Parkinson's disease.

NIKE teases legendary Marty McFly Sneakers with epic 1985 invite

NIKE teases legendary Marty McFly Sneakers with epic 1985 invite

Welcome Back to the Future, where the most widely anticipated pair of sneakers ever conceived have been all but confirmed by NIKE as being about to come into existence - IT'S ABOUT TIME. In a teaser handed out to select sneaker-heavy publishing groups, a midnight call from NIKE quickly turned into a room with only a black box with the swoop logo on it, an iPod Shuffle, and a card which read "Play Me." Once Dr. Emmett Brown was heard saying “Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!", the publisher's next move was to open the box and find a pair of the Doc's classic 2015 shades and a message that invited them to an event that promised nothing less than the sneakers themselves!

UPDATE: FULL DETAILS have been released about what's now called the 2011 NIKE MAG - most excellent!
