Wireless internet... where would we be without it? You don't have to go far these days to find it, but until Wi-Fi is everywhere, this t-shirt can help out tremendously (as well as score some points with fellow nerd-friends.) This glowing, animated tee detects 802.11b or 802.11g signals and displays the strength directly on the front of the shirt. $29.99USD

Implications - In today's tech-crazed society, even the fashion industry has adapted a nerdy aesthetic. Society has changed its attitude towards geeks in a more positively adding the "cool" factor to being smart. The design of shirts incorporating this theme demonstrates that being geeky is cool and that it's being embraced by consumers unafraid to show that side of themselves.
