TSAS vest for pilots

TSAS vest for pilots
It's not only lauded as a savior for pilots, but also as the next big thing in the video game industry and the latest Internet sex toy. The vest comes equipped with a number of tactors -- tactile stimulators -- sewn into it. These can be programmed to send off vibrations that "tickle" the wearer.

Skim.com: Clothing with IDs

Skim.com: Clothing with IDs
Skim.com markets personalized I.D.-tagged clothing: jackets and shirts and bags and skirts, each one individually marked with a unique number and the skim.com URL. Each I.D. number, in turn, correlates to a skim.com e-mail address. If someone sends a note to your I.D. number, it will be forwarded to your skim.com e-mail address. Your clothes are, essentially, telling everyone how to get in touch with you without revealing exactly who you are.
