The 'tshirtOS 2.0' is an ingenious T-shirt that has a digital display that can be programmed to display text and symbols. The second iteration of the original tShirtOS, the tshirtOS 2.0 sets itself apart from other digitally customizable clothing in that it is eminently wearable. Its dot-matrix display uses discreet, built-in LEDs that don't get in the way.

The result of a collaboration between San Francisco-based wearable tech company SWITCH and scotch whisky makers Ballantine's. The tshirtOS 2.0 is not just programmable, but is washable and scrunchable too.

"tshirtOS 2.0 is a whole new way for people to create, share and express themselves through fashion," says SWITCH's founder Alison Lewis. "It’s soft, feels great on and is completely undetectable as technology.” Stats for Digital Display T-Shirts Trending: This Year & Average
