Do you ever find yourself in Starbucks thinking, “How strong is the Wi-Fi connection here?” Well, if you had this T-shirt, you would know.
ThinkGeek is now offering a wearable option for detecting Wi-Fi signals. When the signal is strong, the glowing bars on the front of the shirt light up all the way. When the signal is weak, fewer bars illuminate. The shirt has several pockets, one to carry a Wi-Fi receiver, and another for batteries. When a wireless signal is detected, it’s sent up through a cable connected to the display, so the LED lights in the shirt give off their own signal.
And best of all, it’s machine washable! Of course, you might want to unplug the battery pack and peel off the animated display on the front before you put it in the washing machine.
