W-41: Your Social Media Identity on your clothes

W-41: Your Social Media Identity on your clothesThe W-41 is a high tech shirt that not only holds BO, but soime interesting data as well. See that logo€? If you capture it with a cellphone, you’ll be whisked away to that person’s MySpace page, Blog, or other social networking site. Here’s how it works. You buy one of the pieces of clothing on the site that has this logo, which is unique to only you with your personal info. Then just wear it and do your thing.

If someone in the know passes by and they have downloaded the software on the site for free to their phone, they capture it. Your blogs and virtual identity are revealed and they can leave you messages or check out your social networks. You can get T-shirts and sweatshirts for women and men in vintage white, vintage black, and vintage brown. T-shirts are $49 and $56 for sweatshirts. Pretty cool idea. It kinda makes stalking that much weirder. Does this make stalking a bit more acceptable or not? I’m confused. We’ll if you have the shirt, I’ll be taken a pic. What about when the shirt gets worn? Will it take me to someone else’s page?
