Cool Technology of the Week

How many times have you been wandering through an airport, a hotel lobby, or conference room and wondered if wireless was available? You boot your computer, scan for networks, try to connect and after a bit of trial and error, you conclude that the signal is too weak to sustain a connection.

The cool technology of the week, is the Wi-Fi Shirt from ThinkGeek.com.

This shirt includes an embedded wi-fi receiver, miniature battery pack and a detachable illuminated display that shows wi-fi strength in real time.

This is clearly the must have fashion for network engineers and frequent fliers.

As to the claims on the website that it will attract the opposite sex in wireless cafes, I'm dubious. As a happily married man, I do not think about such things. And besides, my pickup lines such as "I'm a Harvard faculty member and CIO" would never impress the cafe crowd.
