The BlackSocks Smarter Socks solves a common problem. It is a hi-tech garment for the foot that ensures people never misplace another sock again. Essentially, each sock is embedded with a RFID chip that not only helps people lose less socks, but sort through them as well. This way, they can match the right pair up every time.

Founded by Samy Liechti, the BlackSocks Smarter Socks works in tangent with an iPhone app. The app allows people to keep track of their socks in ways never imagined before. For instance, it reminds people how often they have been washed, which sock they are supposed to be paired with, when it was made and when they were ordered.
