Protect Your Privates: Radiation-Proof Underwear Released in Japan

Radiation Proof Underwear

Radiation exposure kills. It also damages parts of your body that’s exposed to it. Most people find no reason to come into contact with radiated waters, but the Fukushima clean-up crews do, and that’s exactly who these radiation shield wear undies are for. Made by Yamamoto Corporation, the underwear is lined with lead to block harmful gamma rays in the abdomen and lower spine area. A beta-ray shielding suit should then be worn over the gamma ray crotch guard to ward of the beta rays. The shielding suit is effective as its seams are completely fused, keeping the radiation out and keeping its wearer safe.

The Yamamoto drysuit will cover the wearer’s entire body, with the only opening being for the face mask. The suits will be available this month for $1,072, while the gamma ray guard will cost an additional $825. Extremely expensive, but hey, they could save your life–that is, if you plan to go swimming in exposed waters.

Let Her Rip: Shreddies Underwear Will Filter Out Your Farts

Shreddies

Do you fart a lot? If you do, you’ve probably already mastered the after-fart poker face where you just sit still with a stony expression and continue doing whatever it is you’re doing, so as to deflect suspicion that you are, indeed, the farter. If you don’t, well, you probably don’t like beans that much.

Frequent farters will be happy to hear that fart-filtering underwear now exists. It’s called Shreddies, and it has an embedded layer of Zorflex, a thin and flexible carbon cloth that’s behind the underwear’s flatulence filtering action.

Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.

Shreddies is available for men (as boxer briefs and support boxers) starting at $40 and for women (as briefs and high-waisted briefs) starting at $30.

For Geeks Down Under: R2-D2 Bra Was Made to Be Poked

That’s probably not the most spot-on usage of ‘down under’, but we couldn’t resist. Obviously this R2-D2 bra isn’t just for geeks hailing from Australia, since I’m sure Star Wars aficionados will jump at the chance to own one. Unfortunately, this interactive piece of underwear isn’t for sale–but you can make one, if you want one.

It’s not just awesome for its design. Like I said earlier, it’s ‘interactive’. All you have to do is poke the nips to see magic happen (in more ways than one, if you’re lucky.)

Full instructions on how to make your own are up on Instructables.

Below-the-Belt Ads: Turn Your Butt Into a Billboard and Get Free Underwear

Free Underwear

Nothing is free in this world. I mean, you can sign up for free offers or subscriptions, but you’ll end up paying for these sooner or later, one way or the other. For example, there’s this site in Japan that’s called Free Pants, and while they’ll send anyone who wants a pair some free underwear, it’s not as free as they’ll think.

You see, each of the pants they’ll be shipping out will have some ad of some sort on the bottom. The logo of some deodorant or shampoo brand or a cable company will be printed and displayed prominently all over the wearer’s butt for the whole world–or for whoever happens to be with them in the bedroom, anyway–to see.

Interested? Sign up for a pair on Free Pants.

SmartPants Cover Your Smartphone’s Privates

SmartPants

Most people aren’t aware of it, but they’re actually guilty of indecent exposure most of the time. Because even though your tush remains covered and snug inside your underpants, you’ve forgotten to cover your iPhone’s derriere–and that’s a big no-no in the phonesphere.

We kid. Obviously your phone doesn’t have any private parts (aside from the ones contained within it, both figuratively and literally) but if you want to dress your phone up either way then you can get some of these SmartPants.

Underwear Cools Your Family Jewels To Help You Reproduce

Screen Shot 2013-03-10 at 8.48.51 PM Screen Shot 2013-03-10 at 8.48.43 PM They say that wearing tightie-whities is bad because it pushes your testicles closer to your body, making them warmer. That’s no good for the health of your little swimmers. The reverse logic would then be that cooling part of your reproductive organs could lead to higher fertility. The Snowball Underwear pictured above does just that, by featuring a removable gel-pack (the SnowWedge™) that rests atop that most vital of body parts, and could help boost your chances at conceiving. Luckily, the company isn’t promising miracles:

They should increase both sperm quality and quantity, and they should give you a better chance to conceive at minimal cost, but fertility science is complex, and you’ll also want to consult with a urologist (for varicoceles), as well as your fertility specialist. Snowballs may end up being just a supplemental treatment for you.

We have our doubts as well, mostly because such a small gel pack will end up getting warm pretty quickly, but hey, what do we know? If you want to try your luck, it’ll cost you a $55 pledge on Kickstarter, and for which you get three pairs of underwear along with 3 gel wedges.

Pokeball Bra: Gotta Keep ‘Em All In

Pokemon Bra

I don’t think you’ll be catching much of anything with these Pokeball bras unless you’re planning to wear just the bra (and nothing more) out in public. Of course, you’ll be getting a lot of attention and catching the eye of many, but it’ll probably be from the type of people you wouldn’t want it from.

These bras are crafted by Etsy seller Neon Wonderland and are geared for the true-blue Poke-fan. It won’t matter if you’re gifted or not in the chest area, because you can specify the padding level you want the brassiere to have when you place your order. Each Pokeball bra is encrusted in hundreds of rhinestones that will sparkle and shine with every move that you make.

They’re priced at $70 each.

Portal Undies and Knee-High Socks Physically Get You in the Game

Portal Socks

What better way to play Portal than to deck yourself out in themed garb? Obviously, you don’t need to, but I think it’s a little funner that way. The love that some people have for their favorite games inspires them to come up with designs revolving around the themes of the game, like these knee-high Portal 2 socks and undies.

You won’t survive any long falls even if you’ve got these socks on, but at least you’ll good in the process.

Smart Undies Prevent Bedsores by Shocking Its Wearers’ Behinds

Smart Underwear

It’s kind of sad how sick people sometimes get sicker, just because they have to (or prefer to) stay in bed a lot. You know what I’m talking about: bedsores. While I don’t exactly know what it feels like to get one, I’ve heard that it’s painful, agitates the patient even more, and might even cause an infection.

Simply turning over once in a while might help prevent the onslaught of bedsores, but if you’re extremely sick and tired, chances are you won’t be moving around like you should. That’s where the smart underwear comes in. It’ll send tiny electric shocks periodically on the patients’ bottoms to make their bodies think that they’ve been moved around or re-positioned. Sounds like an interesting concept, doesn’t it? But the coolest thing is that it’s pretty effective, too, since results from a trial showed that none of the smart undie-wearing patients developed any sores.Continue Reading
