1 Comment

We all want to know what others are really feeling and what better way to find out than to have their clothes turn transparent when they’re aroused?


Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde created a clothing line called “Intimacy 2.0,” a series of barely-there dresses made of black or white strips reminiscent of the look of opaque frosted glass.

In an interview last month, he stated that each “dress contains certain sensors which can measure the heartbeat of the wearer. When a heartbeat is captured the smart foils will be activated and become transparent.”

Never Get Caught Adjusting Again


Kickstarter, the same crowdfunding website that brought the world technology advancing 3d printers, smartwatches, and even virtual reality gaming has officially furthered mankind with the now successfully funded, adjustable men’s underwear by UFM.


What good are all the gadgets in the world if men can’t keep that thing dangling in their khakis from sticking to their legs long enough to play with them? I’m sure that is exactly what creator Eric Schifone asked himself when he sought out to create these patent-pending phallus tamers.

Did you know that men waste upwards of 20 minutes a day adjusting, tucking, and itching their gigglestick? That sounds totally believable even though I just made it up! If it were true, we could say that UMF’s adjustable pouch not only keeps you comfortable but it also saves the world money and increases productivity by keeping things from bouncing around, falling out, and chaffing ever again.

Back in the day, mood rings used to be all the craze. The color of the ring would vary depending on how a person was feeling… allegedly. In reality, the mood ring actually measured a person’s body temperature thanks to a liquid crystal thermometer i.e. the stone that changed color. While a mood ring is little more than a fad, items like the W/Me wristband utilize a similar concept that helps monitor your body’s autonomic nervous system, breathing patterns and heart rate, and lets you know which emotions trigger negative autonomic  reactions.

Unlike other activity trackers, the W/Me focuses one a specific goal of managing breathing and describing a user’s mental state.

If you think about it: who hasn’t wanted turn their shoe into a phone, no matter how impractical and unsanitary it is. Now you can actually own one yourself with UK artist Sean Miles “upcycled” shoe collection – a collaboration with mobile United Kingdom phone carrier’s O2 Recycle initiative.
