How about trying out a wearable electronic t-shirt with an integrated display and camera? This is the creation of whiskey brand Ballantine’s and clothes company CuteCircuit. The tshirtOS is a programmable, washable shirt with a built-in screen for displaying messages.
It shows Twitter updates, Facebook wall posts, or Instagram pictures and has the ability to snap pictures itself and push them directly to your photo stream.
The tshirtOS is a wearable, shareable, programmable and 100% cotton t-shirt. The shirt itself has a microprocessor, which wirelessly connects to an iOS app which can then call on the internet to conduit information to and from your clothes.
It is provided with an audio playback via a headphone jack, and the company claims that the camera used in tshirtOS is the smallest in the world. In fact, it measures 2.5 x 2.9 x 2.5 mm and comes from Omnivision, though only captures at 32 x 32 resolution.
The chest display itself only runs at 32 x 32, consisting of 1,024 ultra thin RGB LEDs.
There’s an ultra-slim PCB with Bluetooth, USB, an accelerometer and a pair of headphone sockets, while the processor hasn’t actually been decided upon.
The tshirtOS could even stand a chance of being produced, though right now it’s a very expensive prototype. Reports are saying that it will be monitoring the interest before making a decision about a production version.
