The Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Cooling Work Shirt features two built-in cooling fans

Last year we took a look at the EntroSys Motorcycle Air Conditioning system, which is a vest that’s designed to blow cooling air across the torsos of leather-jacket-clad bikers. While the EntroSys needs to be attached to a bike-mounted air conditioning unit, there are doubtless many sweltering people who would appreciate a similar but more mobile garment, that they could wear while walking around or working outside. Well, needless to say, there is one – it’s the Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Cooling Work Shirt.  Read More

The days of the silence being broken during a live theater performance by some ridiculous ringtone buried inside an inaccessible handbag or jacket pocket may be as long-gone as the “brick phone” thanks to this smart-shirt for theater ushers. Designed by Richard Etter, the special shirt called AwareFashion detects mobile communications devices in its vicinity that haven’t been switched off.  Read More

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
