Never Lose a Sock Again With Smarter Socks

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 28, 2012


Socks go missing all the time. I don’t know what about socks make them specifically so easy to lose, but every other month or so I find myself having to hit the store to buy a couple new pairs. Nothing extremely pressing, but annoying all the same.

But if you have a tendency to go ape crazy over missing socks, then you probably need the Smarter Socks system.


Created by Samy Liechti of Blacksocks, the system comes with socks embedded with RFID chips so tracking their usage is a breeze. All you have to do is run the sock through the scanner and it’ll show all sorts of useful (or useless?) information, like how many times the sock has been washed, when it was ordered, and if its still got its pair or not.

Really, what more can you want from your socks?

The Smarter Socks system, which includes the scanner and ten pairs of socks, and will cost $189(USD). Now $18.90 for a pair of socks seems expensive, but on the other hand, you’ll never have to worry about losing them.
