Another failed idea – Clothes that vanish when you’re aroused
This is not worth spending a lot of time on, but someone is not thinking about this stuff very hard. Yesterday’s Huffington Post has an article on Intimacy 2.0 – the slightly preposterous idea that you would want to have an article of clothing which becomes more revealing when you get aroused and you, as the person who is wearing it, cannot control it. One could imagine some extraordinary personalities for whom this might work some tiny fraction of the time. But lets be real kids, there is not significant market for this type of garment outside of a small niche of sex workers.
I think if you really wanted to marry technology with intimacy, you would create something which sent signals to other garments and responded not by vanishing, but by brightening up.
