Silic is a Self-Cleaning, Spill-Proof Shirt

Silic Shirt

If you’re a bit of a klutz and routinely spill stuff on your shirt, then you need to get a couple of these Silic t-shirts. They’re described as “self-cleaning” shirts that are made with hydrophobic nanotechnology to ensure that no stain will remain on the shirt, regardless of what you spill or splatter onto it.

The polyester fabric used to make Silic is layered with billions of silica particles that prevent liquids from attaching to the shirt. Silic’s creator, Aamir Patel, explains that the shirt can prevent stains from a multitude of substances, including sodas and foodstuffs like ketchup and sauces. The unique, anti-stain feature can last up to 80 cycles of washing.

Plexus is a Shirt For All Occasions

Plexus

The Plexus is the T-shirt of the future. This futuristic concept design was created by Vernon Chen and Joanne Lim Jin Xuan, who both imagined that the shirts of the future will be “held together by pixelated nano-particles.” These shirts will be highly interactive with the wearer’s surroundings and will morph and change to match the occasion, going from a casual shirt to a formal one within seconds. This feature is attributed to the “opening and closing [of] its louvre-like pixels.”

So a shirt with a coat-and-tie design isn’t exactly formal or proper work attire, but if everyone’s going to be wearing this thing in the future, then that probably won’t be an issue. Of course, such material doesn’t exist yet and the technology to actually come up with this type of shirt is probably still decade away. But it’s still a pretty interesting concept. don’t you think?

You can watch a video highlighting the many features of the Plexus after the break.

‘Ask Me About My Zombie Shirt’ is Perfect for Halloween

Zombie Shirt

Halloween is just a week and a couple of days away. If you don’t have the time to put a costume together, then go for something simple like this (seemingly) basic black tee. People are always saying how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Well, this time, you shouldn’t judge a shirt by its exterior because sometimes, they might just surprise you.

There’s something special about this ‘Ask Me About My Zombie Shirt’ T-shirt, and that much we’ve made clear in the image above. When everyone starts saying what a killjoy your are by showing up to the party, just point to the text in front and challenge them to ask you about your shirt. When they do, lift your shirt up. Some guys might think that they’re getting lucky since someone’s about to flash them (not!) but by doing so, you’ll instantly turn yourself into a zombie with a bloody mouth.

Pretty awesome right? The shirt retails for $14.99.

This Augmented Reality Shirt Will Have Chestbursters Bursting Out of Your Chest

Chestburster Augmented Reality T-Shirt

I screamed so loud the first time I saw an alien explode from a human being’s chest that my sisters banned me from watching another Alien movie until they both got married and moved out of the house. That said, it would probably be best if I stayed away from people who have these augmented reality shirts on, given the fact that chestbursters have been programmed to burst out of their chests at any given moment.

Of course, I’d need a compatible app running on my phone and I’d have to be pointing my device towards their chests to actually see the actual bursting action, but I’ve got a pretty wild imagination that makes up for apps my phone doesn’t have.

If you’re a fan of the Alien franchise, then you might actually want to get one of these shirts. Or you can save yourself thirty bucks and just get the tracking image from their site and silkscreen it onto your own shirt. The guys behind the shirt, Fingerfunk, put together a video showing the app (and chestbursters) in action. Hit the jump to check out the clip and links to more info about where you can get the shirt.
