I was sitting in the lobby at the local barber shop this weekend and happened to catch a bit of the NFL Scouting Combine where some of the players were wearing this cool shirt from Under Armor called the E39 that had sensors embedded. The shirt has a little green light that flashes on front to give a visual indicator that it is working.
So you plan on traveling for the holidays, yes? And you're feeling kind of political, and want to get a jab in at TSA and their new screening process, perhaps? Well then, designers Tim Geoghegan and Matthew Ryan have just the set of clothing your you! And not only you, your whole family, with t-shirts, underwear (men's and women's), and kids clothing. What does it consist of, you might ask? Why, the fourth amendment printed in metallic ink, of course! And you know what metallic ink does when you pass through a TSA scanner, right?
While you're walking around your home, or maybe even in a restaurant or retail location, you sometimes notice that a spot on the floor may be sticky, or have a spill on it that you wish you could clean up, right then and there. But sometimes getting something to clean it isn't all that easy, so what if your shoes could clean it? That's where the FOKI come in.
Today, people love to manipulate their devices with a touchscreen. Whether it's a tablet, or even a PC, people want to be able to touch something to make it happen. It's even more apparent with cell phones, as almost every phone out there incorporates a touchscreen. But, as we get into the colder months, it's going to become increasingly difficult for some people in some locations to use their capacitive touchscreen mobile phones outside. Not for long, as the Agloves are here to save the day.
Having a replica outfit from your favorite movie is still a trend, but it's one that's certainly picking up. And, while you may not have your very own Light Bike to race around your town, that doesn't mean you can't at least look like the characters riding those bikes in the movie. And, thanks to UD Replicas, you can now make your dreams come true. The company has created two different motorcycle suits, one for the Sam Flynn fans, and others for the Quorra fan base.
For the most part, clothing should probably just remain "clothing." You know, stuff that keeps us warm, or generally just keeps us covered so we don't freak out a bunch of people walking down the sidewalk. But, that's not stopping some crafty designers from making a little black dress that's actually, and we mean this, a cell phone. That's right. You get to use a SIM card and everything.
Traveling for the connected geek is a hard thing to do. We tend to carry so many gadgets and electronics with us that it can get to be difficult to pack them all and worry about how safe the gear will be on the flight. I once went through security on the way to CES and the TSA worker operating the x-ray machine said, "Man that's a lot of electronics" and decided to wade through my bag by hand.
