BeerBot shirt from ThinkGeek is a frat boy’s best friend

Posted in clothing by Shane McGlaun on July 14th, 2010

ThinkGeek has all sorts of epic geeky clothing and gadgets. The company often combines the geeky clothing with some sort of useful feature like a shirt that has a guitar you can really play.

The latest shirt from ThinkGeek is the BeerBot Bottle Opening Shirt. The thing is offered for about $20 and is in small to XXL. The front of the shirt has a screen-printed robot that is in the shape of a beer bottle, but reminds me a lot of Bender.

Sure, that’s a nice picture. Now look down. Are you with me yet? Okay. Jennifer Darmour is a designer from Seattle who has incorporated gesture technology into clothing. Called Ping, this clothing can hook up to your Facebook account and with simple gestures you can do all kinds of Facebook things.

For instance, if you tie the waist bow, you can accept friend requests. Or receive vibrations on your shoulders when a new notification hits your account. It’s certainly a unique way to stay connected. Users can even customize gestures to certain groups of friends.

GPS lingerie could help geeks find women, but what then?

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2010

GPS lingerie brings with it a whole bunch of ethical issues. You could potentially locate a cheating wife, or use it in an escort service situation where a pimp can keep tabs on his/her girls, or even play weird GPS sex games if that’s your deal.

For better or worse, Lindelucy of Brazil has outted GPS lingerie that lets you keep track of where the wearer is at all times. Not what they are doing sadly for voyeurs. We shouldn’t worry about the ethical issues that much. The lingerie will be taken off in a matter of minutes.

Pillow-filled clothing for those late nights at the office

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2009

Pillow-filled clothing for those late nights at the officeLate nights at the office just got a lot fluffier thanks to this concept from Polish designer Maja Ganszyniec that turns your collar, tie and sleeve into a pillow and looks very very comfortable. So whether you finish your work and slowly lay your head down or just plain pass out, it’s all good.

You work hard, so why not dress soft? Serta or some other bed manufacturer needs to start churning out clothes like this and completely cover us. I don’t know about you, but I want to live in a world where everyone looks a little more like the Stay-Puft marshmallow man.

Lumitop illuminated clothingLooks like Lumitop, the illuminated clothing that allows your boobs to light up the night, is making the rounds again in the intertubz. We first told you about it way back in August of last year. We just thought we would remind you that you can in fact still order this clothing since we’ve been out and about and haven’t seen any of you wearing it.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t you want to look like a stripper from the Tron universe? The one pictured will cost you 149.00EUR. I suppose one downside is that people will only be looking at your breasts and they won’t remember your face. Oh well. What did expect? This is cutting edge Sci-Fi fashion.

USB Heated ShawlMaybe you have a nerdy grandmother who loves gadgets. This would be the perfect gift from a loving grandson. Or perhaps your grandmother is addicted to online games and complains of a chill between kills. Again, this is the perfect gift. Could also be that you rarely pay attention to your grandmother and are using the computer area as a sort of rest home, hooking her up to all kinds of USB gadgets.

Yeah, I’m just not seeing how you can go wrong buying this for that special elder in your life. It even has a button to hold it in place around the shoulders while you work or play bingo, count pills and the like. Only $29.

Animated Pong T-Shirt shows your geek side
So on the rare occasions when you venture out and get away from your mom’s attic, how do you geeks recognize each other? I’m guessing that one big giveaway would be this animated T-Shirt that plays old school Pong. It’s battery powered and it plays pong right on your chest.

Just make sure that you remove the battery before washing! Venture forth my geek friend and as you journey out into the world, you and your shirt will collect fellow nerds as if you were the Pied piper of Pong.

Google Sari: Your search reveals lady parts beneath

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on June 19th, 2008

Google Sari is searchable by a good frisk
The Sari is a traditional piece of clothing originally worn by Indian women. The Google Sari is a designer’s attempt at being clever. Of course, if Google doesn’t appreciate it, your Sari may turn into a genuine sorry. It’s from designer Satya Paul, who showed the Google sari in one of his recent shows. Very clever. Or maybe not. I can’t decide. I can’t wait for his next attempt, which is probably iPhone inspired and called the Safari Sari or something. Maybe a see-through sari called Microsoft Touch. That one would be trouble.

Dress uses kinetic energy, attracts nerds

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2008

Dress uses kinetic energy, attracts nerds
Amanda Parkes’ dress will get a woman a ton of unwanted attention from geeks and nerds. That’s because it generates power when the wearer moves, using kinetic energy as a result of natural movements of the human body. Piezoelectric material around the joint areas, like the elbows and hips of the garment generate power in response to the mechanical stress. Electricity will be stored as voltage in a tiny centralized battery.

As far as style, it leaves something to be desired. Unless you’re auditioning for the latest Star Trek maybe. If an alien abducted you, I’m not sure if they would be impressed by this garment or just end our misery with a giant death ray.

New T-shirt sort of protects you from knife attacks

Posted in Apparel by Nino Marchetti on March 24th, 2008

knife-shirt.jpgYou may now never have to worry about getting stabbed in the back literally as you walk down the street. A uniform manufacturer in Japan has reportedly developed a T-shirt which provides protection against knives.

The Daily Yomiuri reports these T-shirts are made from “slightly thick fibers that are more than three times as strong as cotton.” The strength of this shirt’s fiber reportedly makes it equal to that found in body armor. You can even toss it in the wash to get off the blood after you kick the ass of your would be attacker.

Turn signal jacket for cyclists

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

Turn signal jacket for cyclistsTurn signal gadgets for cyclists is nothing new, but you don’t often see them in clothing. Ph.D student Leah Buechley on the other hand, has designed several items of electronic clothing, but her signal jacket for cyclists really stands out.

LEDs are embedded in an arrow formation and they flash to indicate that you are about to turn left or right. That’s a good idea since it will warn motorists, and prevent you from becoming roadkill, which we know some rednecks eat. The LEDs are powered by the round device in the center of the jacket, which is a small, sewable computer chip that Leah also designed herself. She obviously needs to be working with clothing manufacturers.

Video vests turn you into a walking TV

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on February 13th, 2008

Video vests turn you into a TVThis Video Vest screen certainly gets your attention. Why carry a boring cardboard sign, when you can get your message across with video, like a picket line for instance or to advertise your business. The Vest actually plays full-motion video with stereo sound so that you have a portable video display anywhere you want.

Apparently regular Joes like me and you can’t buy one due to the vest’s high cost and limited manufacturing, but you can rent one for live events and such. That really sucks because my thinking was that we could put some flat chested girls in this vest and give them a larger rack via video. It would have been my gift to them. I’m a giver.
