The geniuses at ThinkGeek have a new one: the spycam T-shirt. The Electronic Spy Camera Shirt ($39.99) pulls a Purloined Letter by placing the camera's lens in the silkscreened shirt's camera lens. The shirt is a Bond send-up ("From Tokyo with Love").
The camera shoots still images at 640 by 480 pixels, and can hold up to 150 color photos. A remote control vibrates when you press the button, and you plug the camera in via USB to download images. You can remove the electronics in order to wash the shirt. I tried ThinkGeek's Wi-Fi Detector Shirt ($19.99) a few years ago, and it did get a wee bit hot and sticky in there.
After retweeting Laughing Squid Scott Beale's blog entry about the shirt, the immediate response from a friend? "Ooo, I bet the TSA will LOVE that one." The naked full-body scan would be particularly entertaining, I'm sure.

The geeks who think will soon be releasing a real version of their pretend Canned Unicorn Meat--a product made entirely of unobtainium, despite the National Pork Board's concern. Wired says of the upcoming product, "open the lid and you'll find bits and pieces of plush unicorns designed to look as though they've been through the abattoir." Think of it as a sort of cognitive dissonance unicorn chaser.
My friend, the horror writer, Fortean investigator, and educator, Michael Hughes, has been circulating details for a series of occult rituals being planned to cast a “spell to bind Donald Trump and all those who abet him.” The basic mission statement of the ritual: To be performed at midnight on every waning crescent moon until […]
