Sometimes your BlackBerry sits in your purse or pocket, the LED light flashing in a futile attempt to alert you of a life-changing email. Chris and Madeline Ball want to make sure your email is always in your face--or on your chest. The email counting shirt uses an Arduino Lilypad, Bluetooth dongle and an Android phone to continuously check for unread messages. It then lights the correct LED and you light up the room.
I don't recommend cleaning the email counting shirt; however, it might be wise to clean out your inbox. Give your spam folder a good scrub too, just in case. No one else wants to know how much junk mail you've got.
