Clothing for the Tech Obsessed

I’m always looking for ways to get more done in less time. Now I’ve found my ideal solution – a hip clothing line that helps to block out almost all unnecessary distractions.

Take this stylish girl, who happens to be wearing a privacy scarf, for example:

On cold days she can keep her neck warm as she’s walking from Pilates class to the sushi bar, and if she gets a text message on her Blackberry she can quickly pull up her scarf to type away in private:

Or possibly just take some time off to play a little Nintendo?

Now that’s style!

The designer also created a full-sized hoodie for computer use at home. It comes complete with earmuffs to block out sound, and even sports a microphone in the back so friends, spouses, and the fire department can get your attention:

As silly as they look, I’d actually buy one … and wear it on an airplane. There’s nothing worse than spending two hours trying to convince the guy in seat 2A to stop giving me freecell tips. I wonder if airplane safety rules would allow it?

    Brilliant – although I’d like it in a more appealing colour than grey or black. 😉

    Do they have a version that would work for nursing a baby in public as that has become a sudden TABOO in our sex-crazed country? Target could sell it to their nursing customers. Or give it away for free since they’re so obsessed!

    Can I have one for my 60″ plasma?

    I guess the black would give me more privacy and optimum viewing capabilites;however, I think I would like to see it in yellow just to be wild!

    I saw this art on display in London, with a brochure made by the artist. It’s satire. These aren’t meant to be serious!

    Sarah – think anyone would buy them if I started producing these?

    Sarah — I think has been selling these for years, but i could be wrong.

    The same self respecting people that believe youre a smug prick.

    Vanity is the quicksand of reason.

    Well, the cowboy hat, as we know it now, started out as a comedy bit. People started realizing that not only was it funny looking, with it’s comically oversized bill and too-tall top, that it was functional for the job of a cowboy and it was soon adopted by cowboys all over the nation – and soobn the world over.

    Actually, I’m a homosexual

  19. on 22 Nov 2009 at 1:48 pm bob

    SO ridiculous.

    Think if you wore it on a plane, the other passengers would tackle you and call the FBI =)~
