ThingThong Turns Flip Flips to Instant Thongs
June 17th, 2012
Multipurpose stuff like the Titan Multi Tool Collar and LG Smart Scan Mouse make seemingly ordinary things seem much more useful. But then there are designs like the ThingThong that makes me think twice about cramming too many uses into a certain object. See for yourself and tell me you don’t agree with me.
Not a very pretty sight, is it? It’s a concept design (well, I hope it is) by designer Douglas Hamilton. It’s basically a pair of flipflops – and, if needed, it also converts into two pairs of swim trunks.
Each flipflop has a super elastic strap which stretches out and converts it into a thong strap. Just flip the ThingThong over, stretch it wide, step inside, and wear it. It doesn’t look comfortable, attractive, or appealing in any way, so I highly doubt it’ll make it’s way to any manufacturers, but you never know.
