High-Tech Ugly Christmas Sweaters With Animated Designs are Still Ugly

High Tech Christmas Sweater

These are Christmas sweaters by Digital Dudz and they’re as tacky and ugly, like you’d expect ugly Christmas sweaters to be. They’re a lot more high tech compared to your typical sweater though, because the designs actually come to life. Some sweaters have fireplaces that burn bright, the one with the snowglobe has snow falling randomly, while two others that feature Santa and an adorable kitten have eyes that periodically move sideways.

Creepy? Yes. Nice? No. Still ugly? Definitely.

The sweater has a velcro pocket on the inside that can fit most mobile devices, include an iTouch, iPhone, or a Samsung Galaxy S3. The mobile device, in turn, runs the free companion app, which provides the animation.

Each animated Ugly Christmas Sweater is priced at $54.95.

Twitter-Powered Knitbot Knits Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Designated Drivers

Knitbot

Don’t drink or drive, because lives will be on the line. If you’re going on a night out with friends where alcohol is involved, then it’s always best to assign designated drivers beforehand. That way, they’ll drink less than their limits and everyone will get home safe and sound.

As a means to promote designated drivers and reward them, Budweiser UK embarked on a campaign involving Twitter and a knitting robot called Knitbot. The Knitbot is powered by Twitter in the sense that it only knits ugly Christmas jumpers (that’s ugly Christmas sweaters in the US) when someone tweets updates containing the #Jumper4des hashtag.

Happy Ugly Holidays: Design Your Own Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ugly Christmas Sweater

Christmas is the season for holiday cheer and ugly Christmas sweaters. The latter is more like a running joke these days, with folks gifting friends, family, and loved ones with atrocious-looking sweaters that get a huge round of laughs the moment the presents are opened. Personally, ugly sweaters are starting to grow on me. Maybe I’ve just seen too much of them, but a lot of them look so bad and outrageous that they almost look good.

This time around, you can take on a more active role in creating an ugly Christmas sweater using Coke Zero’s ugly sweater generator. Once you’re done with your masterpiece (or loserpiece, because the uglier it is, the better), get your friends to vote on your design. If you land in the top 100, Coke will have someone knit your design and send it to you with their compliments.

Even Non-Gamers Would Approve: Video Game Pixelated Sweatshirts

Video Game Sweatshirts

Whoever said that gamers have poor taste when it comes to fashion obviously haven’t seen Drew Wise’s video game-inspired collection of sweatshirts. They’re colorful, they’re snug, and they’re comfortable, which is basically everything a sweatshirt should be. They’re available in designs that borrow themes from video game franchises and consoles, from the Game Boy handheld console to Pokemon.
