Get some geek cred with a Wi-Fi Detector Shirt

January 24, 2008 For those who like wearing their geek credentials on their sleeve – or in this case, chest - ThinkGeek.com has just the thing. Their Wi-Fi Detector Shirt displays the current wi-fi signal strength with glowing bars that dynamically change as the surrounding wi-fi signal fluctuates, thereby saving you and anyone around you the trouble of pulling out the laptop just to check the wi-fi status of your current location. The black, 100% cotton t-shirts are capable of showing signal strength for 802.11b and 802.11g standards and run off three AAA batteries that are concealed in a small pocket sewn inside the shirt. The animated decal is also removable for washing.  Read More

A shirt-ironing machine from Siemens

It might look like a dress dummy, but it could be the ironing lady of your dreams - it's an ironing machine designed to iron shirts and it has just gone on the market in Germany for EU' 1.029,00. Apparently, it works VERY WELL! Research shows it takes the average person eight minutes to iron the average shirt according to Seimens, the makers of the Dressman, the world's latest attempt at building a machine to iron shirts. For those busy professionals amongst us, that represents a saving of at least 40 minutes a week, not to mention the opportunity to avoid one of man's least favourite chores (again according to research from Siemens). The 'dressmann' irons completely on its own and has a number of other attributes which make it worthwhile - it can 'freshen up' jackets that have not been worn for a while, and can actually dry a freshly washed blouse.  Read More
