Wearable tech is a hot topic these days, as it’s gone far beyond the Walkman and new gadgets are being thought up and produced every day.
The biggest buzz has been around technology worn either near the eyes (Google Glass) or the wrist (FitBit, iWatch)–both models that the public have generally shown interest in, as they often have useful functions like giving you directions and tracking your fitness activities (though we’re still on the fence about actually wearing Google Glass).
Some actually seem useful, like Memi, a bracelet (it’s all about the wrist!) that vibrates when someone important calls or texts you (so you don’t have to have your phone out all the time); and LUMOback, a gadget that corrects your posture. However, they could also be the kinds of things we buy and use a few times and then totally forget about.
There are already several smart watches on or soon-to-be-on the market, so it’s safe to say that concept has a future. However, we’re not sure the same can be said for, say, a bra that automatically sends out a Tweet when it gets unhooked. Yep, that’s a thing. So is a pair of panties that conceals the smell of your farts.
Click through to learn a little bit more about those and some other bizarre—perhaps pointless—wearable tech that’s out there.
