Geek chic

The last time the tech world ushered in a must-have fashion item, it was the Global Hypercolour t-shirt (you know, the one that changes colour when you touch it).

Following on from this questionable fashion statement, a new trend: internet-connected clothes that display your digital world, from status updates to YouTube videos. With in-built speakers, they can even play music. (Thanks, Nads)

This t-shirt is the latest high-tech fashion project from London label CuteCircuit. Described by the Shoreditch company as the ‘world’s most advanced piece of digital clothing’, the Wi-Fi enabled cotton t-shirt includes a 1,024-pixel screen that’s powered by a USB-charged battery pack. The prototype costs £20,000, so if you want one then you’d better get saving!
