Geeks - you've gotta love 'em. Yes, they can be irritating when quoting obscure Spock-isms for the millionth time but they certainly know their onions when it comes to creating cool T-shirts, especially ones that do more than simply cover the upper body. Enter the truly ingenious Wi-Fi Detecting T-Shirt.
John's catalogue pose
As its name suggests, this hi-tech garment lets you know when you're in a Wi-Fi zone by graphically displaying the Wi-Fi connections floating around the vicinity. Glowing bars on the front of the shirt dynamically change as the signal strength fluctuates. Clever, eh?
Armed with this so-nerdy-it's-cool clobber there's no need to crack open your laptop or fiddle with your PDA searching for nearby Wi-Fi signals. Wear it anywhere - from coffee shops and airports to hotels and forthcoming Friends of DeForest Kelley Conventions. The possibilities are endless. Kind of.

As well as its undeniable practicality, this über-hip tee looks pretty darned cool. And in terms of showing off your geek credentials it beats all those 'My other car is a Millennium Falcon/I don't remember this sci-fi show but I'll pretend to' T-shirts by a country mile.
Small battery pack
So how does this tribute to geekocity work? We'd love to say it receives its power remotely from a subterranean base hidden somewhere beneath the Mojave Desert, but the truth is there's a sleek little battery pack hidden in the hem. Simply switch on and start scanning. The Wi-Fi Detecting T-Shirt is set to become a must-have accessory amongst fashion-conscious geeks, Wi-Fi fans and fluent Klingon speaking tech-heads the world over, so hit the Buy button and start receiving all the right signals. Quapla!
Great idea, Firefox!
