Light up Apple rainbow T-shirt

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

Light up Apple rainbow T-shirtThis one is for Apple fanboys and girls who want to profess their love of the company loudly and with light. These illuminated t-shirts feature the old school rainbow Apple logo and they light up using an electroluminescent display that responds to music and other ambient sounds.

Apple hasn’t used the classic rainbow logo since 1998, so I guess it’s time to bring it back. Probably against Steve Jobs’ wishes. I’m sure that’s why the apple leaf is facing the wrong way. Might be a good idea to get one now before any lawyers get involved. They’ll cost you between $20 and $45. Video below.

Eyeglasses that are instantly adjustable

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008

Eyeglasses that are instantly adjustableBritish Inventor Josh Silver has somehow escaped Wii injury in the UK and developed a pair of eyeglasses that are instantly adjustable, thanks to a liquid-filled sac in the middle. You just add more fluid to make the glasses stronger, drain them to weaken them. This could well make prescription lenses a thing of the past. They rely on the principle that the fatter a lens is, the more powerful it is, so by adding or losing fluid, the glasses can be instantly tailored to the right strength.

They’re also simple enough to adjust that anyone can do it. The only complaint so far is that they’re, well, huge. Josh is planning a trial in India that will distribute over 1 million pairs, at a cost of $1 per pair by 2020, otherwise known as the year of Coke bottle glasses.

DIY Toy Piano shirt

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2008

DIY Toy Piano shirtEveryone is into fancy musical shirts these days. Shirts, shirts, the magical fruit, the more you wear ‘em the more they toot. Or something like that. You can make yourself one of these wearable toy piano shirts if you have the know-how. This one was made by a crafty and crazy modder who gutted a toy electronic piano and then sewed it into the fabric of a shirt. Of course that includes the batteries, speaker, and circuit board.

It was shown at the DIY Festival in Zurich and it looks pretty sweet in a Tron sort of way. I’d be happy with just the shirt, minus the piano parts. Yes, more outer space wear please.

Guinness Bottle Opener Cap makes getting drunk easy

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2008

Guinness Bottle Opener Cap makes getting drunk easyIt’s beginning to look a lot like a redneck Christmas…I mean how much do you have to drink during a typical day, to say to yourself, “I need that there hat!”. If you see nothing odd about this bottle opener hat, then chances are pretty good that you attend Nascar races while simultaneously courting your sister. In case it’s not obvious, the Guinness Bottle Opener Baseball Cap has a metal hook on the brim to tear off caps, and it’s officially licensed by the beer company and all.

The cap sells for $25, which isn’t too bad if you absolutely must have it. But you’re probably thinking that your teeth have done the job thus far, and they can probably open another couple hundred beers. Cuz that $25 should really go toward brew.

Boot and Glove DryerIf you’re spending much of your holidays in the snow or if you happen to fall in a lake, this boot and glove dryer might come in handy. The Pacific Outdoors Deluxe Boot and Glove Dryer supposedly dries your boots and gloves quietly, with efficient thermal convection that circulates warm air through your boots.

No word on how much power it sucks up, but nothing beats being able to wear some pre-heated and dry boots in the winter. The price is $44. As a bonus it looks like some strange booted and gloved creature with no head has just kicked the bucket right there on your floor.

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ring

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2008

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ringHere’s a ring only a married geek could love. Most people engrave their wedding ring with things like “Forever” or “Yes I Do” etc. Instead of engraving those words on a wedding ring, this ring comes with a cut-out of the sound wave of “Yes I Do”. Designer Sakura Koshimizu uses lasers to cut out the shape of the waveform of those sounds.

He’ll use sound editing software, record the sound and the software will show the sound waves on the screen, which can then be fed into a laser. Hey, it’s better then a tattoo. How many ya got now? Pam, Mary, Laura and Britney? Meanwhile you’re married to a Sarah. Yeah, this is much better. You know, just in case.

Skull belt buckle MP3 player with LED display

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2008

Skull belt buckle MP3 player with LED displayThis Heavy Metal-esqe skull belt buckle will make your crotch more hardcore and play music. It holds your pants up while holding 1GB of tunes. It also displays LED light patterns, but can’t do so while playing music. The manufacturer claims that it can also be used “as a handheld weapon,” though I’m not sure how that works.

Maybe it distracts your opponent with it’s light show. Maybe you’re opponent will feel sorry for you and your fashion sense, giving you an opening to undo your belt and give them a beat down complete with soundtrack and flashing lights. You can get it now at wholesale, but do you really want to be that guy?

e-Volve gadget shoulder holster

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 14th, 2008

e-Volve gadget shoulder holsterThe e-Volve gadget shoulder holster evokes images of all those 70′s TV detectives packing some heat under a cheap suit. But somehow this just doesn’t look half as cool. Will this awkward bit of fashion usher in a slew of crappy “Gadget Detective” shows, complete with crap theme music and vintage intro? Man I hope so. “Others use guns. He uses gadgets”. Can you see it? Kind of like Beretta, Kojak and MacGuyver all in one.

This Shoulder Holster is made to carry multiple gadgets and help you get all that clutter out of your pockets. It’s fully-adjustable and form-fitting with small and large sized quick-access pouches for personal electronics. The holster has several straps to keep it securely in place. The e-Volve shoulder holster is already available and retails for $79.95, though its currently on sale for the holidays at $69.95.

Immersion Scarf: When you absolutely, positively need to look like an idiot

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2008

Immersion Scarf: When you absolutely, positively need to look like an idiotThe Immersion scarf will instantly make you look like Snuffleupagus, wearing what amounts to a long erect snout on your face. The idea is that you will always be able to see those important text messages, even in direct bright sunlight. You could probably also play your PSP, or watch the iPod videos too.

Just understand that the humanity around you will be thoroughly creeped the hell out. Seeing one or two of these snout creatures on a park bench would freak me out and make me run home, where I would try to figure out if I was really in some tripped out David Lynch movie or not.

W-41: Your Social Media Identity on your clothes

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2008

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?

Steampunk Goggles are a work of genius

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2008

Steampunk Goggles are a work of geniusThere are Steampunk googles, and then there are Steampunk goggles that are quality made and look pretty damn spiffy too. The metal components that you see in this pair are solid milled titanium, coated in gold colored titanium nitride. That’s pretty cool by itself, but these goggles also feature irises that can be opened and closed through independent sliders.

If that isn’t enough to get your Steampunk blood boiling with steam power, the photochromatic lenses automatically tint in sunlight. The leather is actually bolted to the eyepieces, using 48 tiny bolts plus another four for the nosepiece. The creator obviously believes in quality.

Nike Bicycle Glasses give you super vision

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2008

Nike Bicycle Glasses give you super visionNike is developing a pair of glasses for bike riding that could very well save your life. The glasses will extend your peripheral vision so that you are able to see objects behind you. The Nike Hindsight glasses have a special lens on the sides that allows for a field of view greater than the human limit of 180º. It will give you an extra 25º of viewing on both sides, making you see things like some bugs no doubt see the world.

The lenses distort the images on the side but the human eye can only detect motion in that area anyway, so the image will remain clear to you. You’ll be able to see cars or pedestrians coming up from behind you. It’s still a concept at the moment, but I’m sure this is one we will actually see in about 5 years or so.
