World’s first Programmable T-Shirt: Your own personal washable billboard!
Well, the world is indeed becoming commercial and while sportsmen getting tagged with endorsement stickers are good for their revenue, you too can now join the movement in your little way. The World’s first programmable Tee might not have been designed for commercial purposes, but if you think about it, a wearable, washable and programmable t-shirt that can flash messages is simply a great way of getting an advertiser onboard and you can even do it in a subtle fashion. Of course, if everyone starts sporting one of these, then you can kiss your chances of turning the idea created by Cutecircuit and Ballantine into quick cash goodbye.
But, what it surely does give is an opportunity to shout out a tweet, a message that you want people to stand up and take notice off, a tune that you might want to share or even just a funny one liner that sounds dumb to others. And you can even hook it up with your iPhone or even iPad and an iOS App that comes along will help stream everything digital that you want displayed onto the Tee. Apparently it also comes with an inbuilt camera, microphone, accelerometer and speakers. Not sure how you wash it then, and definitely do not want a shirt with speakers!
For now, we would be happy with one that just has the flashing billboard on and while we are at it, why not tell us what would be your first message on the Programmable T-Shirt?
