    Washing machine uses one cup of water, plastic chips

    Get right the hell out of here. What would you say if I told you that there’s a company in the UK that’s trying to get a washing machine to market in 2009 that uses only one cup of water per load and doesn’t need a dryer? The washing machine is called the Xeros and it “uses thousands of reusable plastic chips to remove and absorb dirt,” according to MetaEfficient. One… Read More

    Travel Advisory: Optimus Prime is a security threat

    The guy in the photo here, UK resident Brad Jayakody, tried to board an airplane wearing that Transformers T-shirt and was told by security at London’s Heathrow airport, “You cannot get on the plane because there is a gun on your T-shirt,” according to The Sun.  Luckily, Brad was able to change into a different shirt in order to board the plane. A spokesperson for Heathrow… Read More

  • Do not mess with her: The No Contact Jacket has arrived

    Do not mess with her: The No Contact Jacket has arrived

    I like the idea: a jacket that is wired to shock anyone who grabs it with electricity whilst keeping the wearer safe from harm, but isn’t it — practically speaking — kind of silly? I mean, we have other deterrents that are just as effective, such as pepper spray, kung fu, and bodyguards. Do we need this kind of active clothing? What if you’re in a crowded elevator and it… Read More

  • Keyboard pants with built-in mouse, NERD ALERT

    Keyboard pants with built-in mouse, NERD ALERT

    Wow, you’d have to be really nerdy to wear these keypants/keyboard trousers. I do a lot of nerdy things but wearing these pants is kind of beyond the pale. That said, how awesome are they? and the built-in mouse? Check out the close-up. Did you notice there are speakers built into the knees? Great way to pick up girls at a LAN party. Update: I’d like to call your attention to the… Read More

  • Dillard's to begin testing RFID system

    Dillard's to begin testing RFID system

    Back in high school, I worked at a Banana Republic part-time. One of the most common problems was running out of a certain article of clothing and having to direct customers to other stores, which in turn lost us business, which in turn meant less hours to work. Dillard’s is looking to change all that though (or at least the whole running out of stock thing) by testing out a new RFID pilot… Read More

    Mannequins in motion

    Have you ever been shopping for clothes and spotted a killer outfit that really suits your style? I know I have, but the problem is, I want to see how I’ll look walking around in it. Sure, I can throw a t-shirt on and see how it looks, but how will others see me when I’m running from the police due to a petty vandalism charge? Enter the Moving Mannequin. For $12,000, your boutique can… Read More

    Marc Ecko's Boba Fett hoodie

    What do you get when a ghetto fashion icon gets drunk one night, watches the entire Star Wars trilogy and stays up into the night designing a hoodie? Boba Fett done downright ugly. Some would say that this atrocious piece of clothing resembles the Star Wars bounty hunter. I say it resembles that of a homeless man’s attire. Ether way, you know you want it. Ecko is making other Star Wars… Read More

    Lacoste Gets Jiggy With The Second Life Crowd

    First off, forgive me for saying the word Jiggy. Now, apparently this game/Second Life/whatever you call it is getting really big. One of my favorite clothing companies, Lacoste, has struck a deal with Linden Labs to create a virtual modeling contest. Alligator & Co. are looking for 100 “remarkable” avatars to appear in Second Life and model Lacoste clothing. Six of the winners… Read More

    T-Dancer Sound Sensitive Shirt Great For Illegal Raves

    Those who are currently sober at 11:10am on a Monday morning probably won’t understand the beauty of this. But to those who are drunk or using, the T-Dancer is some of the coolest apparel out there. On the front is a dancing lady with a neon-colored background. Nothing special, right? Incorrect you are my friend. The shirt comes with a sensitivity dial to increase or decrease the amount of… Read More

  • Plantronics + Quiksilver/Roxy = Bluetooth Audio That Doesn't Look Douchey

    (or, indeed, unwired) clothing is something we’ve seen before, iPod remotes in sleeves and the like, but Plantronics has partnered with Roxy and Quiksilver and they seem to have gotten it right, releasing a series of snowboarding equipment with built-in stereo Bluetooth hands-free kits. The line of parkas and helmets allows not only for chatting with co-boarders on the slopes via Bluetooth… Read More

    ScottEVest Secret Sale

    I’m a fan of SeV stuff. Scott essentially makes clothing with lots of pockets for carrying almost anything imaginable. I have one of his jackets, for example, and I’ve carried bottles of J&B Whiskey and laptops without making myself too conspicuous.
