Wi-Fi T-Shirt Finds Hotspots


The shirt’s animated decal shows signal strength for 802.11b or 802.11g.

If a pocket protector isn’t enough to show people what a geek you are, maybe you just aren’t putting together the right ensemble. Think Geek wants you to flaunt that geekiness with the Wi-Fi Detector Shirt.

Sure people may point and laugh, but you will be laughing all the way to your nearest Wi-Fi hotspot. The glowing bars on the front actually illuminate as your surrounding IEEE 802.11b or 802.11g signal fluctuates.

The stronger the signal, the more bars you will get. The Think Geek guys say that “geeky chicks swoon at your presence.” Maybe they are just concerned about the three AAA batteries growing out of your armpit.

Gearlog adds that the decal is removable, so you can actually wash the shirt without withering its nerdy superpowers. Such a fashion statement will cost you 30 bucks.
