MIT Student's Nanotech Threads Adjust to Any Season

While it may not garner any fashion awards, a line of climate-controlled clothing developed by an MIT student can help regulate the body's temperature. According to Co.Design, Kranthi Kiran Vistakula's ClimaWare apparel can operate for eight hours on a single charge, and the vest (pictured right) weighs the same as a pair of jeans. Vistakula's apparel, which also includes a helmet, neckwrap and...

'Back to the Future' Inspired Shoes Really Tie Themselves

'Back to the Future,' like America, just had a birthday (although it only turned 25), and our feeds are blowing up with McFly-related memorabilia. Back in 2008, Nike released a pair of special edition 'Back to the Future II' inspired high-tops, but, as badass as the Marty McFly 2015 Nike Hyperdunks were, they lacked one important feature: the ability to tie themselves. Just in time for the...

iPad Vest Takes Aim at Style

It looks like the bandwagon of questionable iPad peripherals is already taking passengers. Mere days after the device's debut, SeV/SCOTTEVEST has claimed the dubious distinction of "the first & only clothing line with a pocket for the iPad." The company's Travel Vest (for men or women!) features 22 pockets, and can easily carry your iPad, iPod and iPhone; although, sadly, it leaves no room...

Star Wars Fans, Brace Yourselves For Millennium Falcon-Inspired Kicks

With Star Wars licensing having resulted in adorable apparel like R2-D2 backpacks and even slick-looking Marc Ecko hoodies, it should come as no surprise that in January, you'll be able to pick up Adidas sneakers inspired by the popular sci-fi franchise. For the first Spring/Summer 2010 collaboration, Adidas Originals and Lucasfilm Ltd. worked together to design high tops and sneakers...

Rechargeable, Winter-Ready Gear Keeps Wearer Warm, Defies Nature

No matter how many gadgets and products humanity develops, there are two forces of nature that technology cannot stop: age and weather. Efforts to prevent aging have changed dramatically in the last century, but our approach to weather has stayed pretty much consistent -- less clothing when it's hot, more when it's cold -- that is, until recently. While nothing can really be done to change the...

Calvin Klein Crafts USB Sunglasses

Calvin Klein takes a page from James Bond, and it's actually pretty geek chic. For the October 2009 debut of the esteemed brand's men's sunglasses, the frame gives way to a four gigabyte USB drive. The best part is that the drive is nestled into the metallic detail of the frame, making it undetectable to anyone besides the user. So when wearers are out and about, hear a song they like on a...

Solstrom's New Nano-Bikini Is Water-Repellent

Last year the brain trust in Zurich announced their high-tech leisure suit that never gets wet, and now Solestrom International (the UV-detecting bikini company) has announced its own water-repellent nano-material. Called Sun Dry, each fiber of the new fabric is surrounded by an invisible barrier that allows water to pass through it rather than being absorbed into it. Essentially, the swimwear...
