We have seen lots of clothing for catching WiFi signals, so it is no surprise that Nike Dunks have the same built-in. Named “A Step in the Right Direction,” the sneakers were designed by MSTRPLN and Ubiq. There are 3 LEDs on the flap enclosure that will go solid when it registers a signal up to 50 meters. These are not the kind of shoes to wear on a rainy day, we suspect. Contact Nike for price and availability.

If 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.
