J'han, now that was interesting! Brings a whole new level to advertising on shirts! Or anything else for that matter. I did like the clock in the sofa thing that they showed.
Thanks for letting ME, know about this stuff. Very fitting, don't you think??

Do you know a TV show "Dragons Den"? I watched it, of course - wonder why? - but it's 5 super rich business people listening to requests from wannabe entrepreuners (sp??) for money to expand their businesses.

A recent one I saw, the product was baseball caps with solar powered lighting around the brim - in about 5 different sequences, depending on how they switched it on!

I thought it looked fantastic - funny that - the dragons were not convinced.
Back to the drawing board!

Very cool, though I can't see most people wanting to wear an advert unless there's cash in it for them. But having a shirt you could program yourself.... much potential.

Here's the link, to make it easier for folks to go see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd99gyE4jCk

I love Dragon's Den! Although some of the people who go on there are out of their minds... I'd want one of these shirts as soon as they stop being advertising and start being pictures I like...

Sorry, never bothered to post the link because I know of at least a few forums that block links, regardless of content.

What is Dragon's Den?

We haven't had problems with bad links, save for a few spammers who were quickly dispatched, so no reason to block them here! Link away, J'han!

I'm with you Apo, as soon as you could get what you want on them, instead of advertising(which I wouldn't wearing) I would certainly want to get one too !!!

Ok, round two.

I thought this was great. Bar one colored textbook page of reproductive organs, not even pictures, (And I believe I may safely assume most people here are older/have had more experience and therefore will be less scandalized), it was a slightly refreshing veiw of our odd species.
