Keep Track of Your Kids by Their Coats

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Google, GPS,

Bladerunner JacketThe British clothing company Bladerunner has created a coat for children that features a GPS SiRF III in its lining. Originally made for mountain climbers and other sports fanatics, the jacket operates by the use of Google Earth maps and therefore can be used worldwide. Updated every 10 minutes, the image will narrow the view down to within 4 square meters. It also features Bladerunner’s slash-resistant lining and 2 dedicated buttons for emergencies. Considering that the outerwear has a price of $500.00 and $20.00 a month for the technology, we just hope you have one of those kids that is not the first to leave his/her coat at the local playground.

Find WiFi Signal With T-Shirt

WiFi T-ShirtIf you have WiFi, it can often be difficult to find the right spot. But some mighty clever folks have designed a glowing, animated shirt that changes bar strength for the wireless signals. The clothing works for both 802.11b and 802.11g connections and runs on a battery pack concealed in an inside pocket. The decal is attached by hook and loop fasteners so that you can remove it to wash the shirt. It will work for several hours on three AAA batteries (not included.) The black t-shirt is available at ThinkGeek for $29.99.

Bleeding Edge TV 187: SCOTTeVEST Performance Shirts

So, we’ve shown you quite a bit as it relates to products in the past. Overall, we’ve been generally impressed with how the company is able to make clothing that is both fashionable and convenient for those of us who carry around way too many gadgets. In this episode of Bleeding Edge TV, we take a look at a couple of SCOTTeVEST Performance Shirts. These shirts draw moisture from your body, as they are made from a special lightweight fabric given the Cool Comfort treatment. As with all SCOTTeVEST products, the shirts feature the Personal Area Network (PAN) that lets you string your cords through the innards of the clothing, rather than having them dangle externally. Take a look at the video, and let us know what you think.

However, we just came across this video on YouTube video featuring SCOTTeVEST’s own Scott Jordan on the Donny Deutsch Show talking about how the SCOTTeVEST brand came in to being. It’s an interesting look at one of our favorite clothing companies, plus you get to see Scott pull all sorts of craziness out of his vest. Good times.

Krusty Demon VansHomer Vans

When will Simpsonmania end? Every other commercial, Fox promo, and site has at least one ka-ching for Matt Groening and crew. We are pleased that in between the Squishees and Krusty battling the BK mascot, we found these anti-Simpson shoes. The Limited Edition Krusty the Demon Vans seem to be so popular that they are only available on eBay, from prices of $127.00 to upwards of $350.00. We did find one pair of Homer in Shattered Glass shoes by the same designer Tony Muñoz for $22.50, unless someone has already snatched them up to resell on eBay for a higher price, too.

Spoilt Tee Shirt Design

We admit to being a little torn: we abhor spoilers, so we’re feeling a little guilty about loving this t-shirt so much. It’s the attention-grabbing, conversation-starting—and possibly violence-inducing—Spoilt Tee, which blatantly reveals the surprise ending to many popular (and cult) movies, and one TV show. Available in men’s and women’s sizes in black for $15-$17 USD. Pop culture kudos to those who can identify the source of each spoiler—which you’d better know if you wear this shirt. This
