Could lighted underwear be the next big thing? Back in November we told you about GloThong, a glow in the dark thong. Now we bring you LED underwear by Puff-Buff. Much like the GloThong, expect to see these designs on the night club scene in the not so distant future. If clubbin just ain’t yo thang, perhaps using the garment as a night light for some late night reading would be a more viable alternative.

My geek meter went right past the 11 mark when I saw the Pilot Watch, which has a built in slide rule. If you didn’t know, a slide rule is a device made obsolete by the invention of the electronic calculator. For those of us who want to get nostalgic or flaunt their supergenius, the slider helps you solve time, distance and speed equations, provide currency conversions, multiply, divide, and perform any conversion of a linear nature such as ounces to grams, kilograms to pounds, miles to kilometers, etc. Impress your date and calculate tips at the same time! It retails for $250.

Adidas is gearing up for the launch of its new sneaker, which features a microchip that helps to adjust the fit as you engage in various walking/running activities. Small cables inside the shoe adjust the heel cushion as the microchip senses the pressure on the sneaker. At $250, I was expecting it have a wireless MP3 player built in too. The worlds first “smart shoe” will hit stores on March 18.

Behold, the Anti-Panti. Those polka dot looking things up there are actually 4” discs of cloth which are sticky on the underside. The point here is that the ladies will be able to stop wearing panties altogether, and instead stick these things in the crotch of their pants. No more panty lines, because you are no longer wearing panties! It’s like wearing a pad all the time, but with designs like Tiger, Camoflauge, and even Jesus. Wow.

Want to keep creeps away from from you, but don’t have a pair of nunchucks with you at all times? Wearable Warnings, a project by Philip Worthington at the RCA in London, is a prototype coat that helps you do just that. From their website:
The prototype design is a coat with warning strips of fur that become electro-statically charged in situations where the wearer feels threatened. When charged the fur begins to stand on end; a visual indication that the wearer is uncomfortable. If someone invades the wearer’s personal space they will begin to feel a second warning; as they enter the coat’s electrostatic field they will feel tingling skin sensations and their hair will stand on end. The fur will begin to twitch toward them and emit crackling sounds. If the ‘threat’ proceeds to touch the fur then 100,000 volts of electro-static charge discharges from the fur, into the offender’s body (non-lethal but definitely a bite).
They forgot to mention that it makes you look like a B-movie monster.
