Email-Counting T-Shirt: T is for “Too Much Tech in This”

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 5, 2010


Chris Ball and his wife Madeleine created an email-counting shirt. If you’re looking for a valid justification for the existence of a shirt that can count new emails in binary form then you must be new to technabob. Welcome! And remember, hackers and tinkerers don’t ask why. They ask what if.

The Lilypad Arduino on the shirt is paired with a Bluetooth dongle (the red “stalk” in the middle of the Lilypad). When Chris gets new email, his Android phone sends a signal to the Lilypad, which then activates the light or lights that will add up to his total number of new emails.

This would be way cooler if Chris could make it work over long distances. Or if the shirt electrically shocked him everytime a new message comes in, for as many times as the number of new messages. What do you think, Mrs. Ball? :D
