TshirtOS is a web-connected, programmable T-Shirt

CuteCircuit has produced a prototype shirt which is programmable and web-connected

| Fashion meets Tech News | Posted: Aug 2, 2012 7:33 pm

As if there weren't enough shirts with phrases on them to express yourself, a new shirt looks to be programmable via your smartphone to allow instant changes to what is displayed. CuteCircuit, which worked on the idea with Ballantine's whisky, is about to start product testing and is planning to mass produce if there is enough interest.

The shirt features an LED display, camera, microphone, speaker and accelerometer in a nifty package. Better yet, everything is controllable via your smartphone. The shirt can play music videos, show Tweets, capture belly-height photos and Instagram them, or pretty much anything else you can think of using those included devices.

 

There is no official price, spec list, or even Kickstarter page, but it's likely more than just viral marketing. Taking a gander at CuteCircuit's history, there's no reason to believe that it won't be produced. Take a look at the video released by CuteCircuit below:
