Pimp my wireless: T-shirt displays Wi-Fi signal status

Yes for the geek who has everything or perhaps an early Christmas present for your favorite telecommuter we give you the Wi-Fi Detector Shirt.

According to the company's Web site, the glowing bars on the front of the shirt actually change according to any nearby Wi-Fi signal strengths. A concealed battery pack provides the low tech that enables the shirt to work. Just don't sweat.

According to the company the shirt includes the following features:

* Glowing animated shirt dynamically displays the current Wi-Fi signal strength.

* Shows signal strength for 802.11b or 802.11g

* Black 100% Cotton T-Shirt

* Animated Decal is Removable (with hook and loop fasteners) for Easy Washing

* Battery Pack is Concealed in a Small Pocket Sewn Inside the Shirt

* Runs for hours off three AAA Batteries (not included)

* It sells for $30

And there is one final note. According to the company's Web site, "Finally you can get the attention you deserve as others bow to you as their reverential Wi-Fi god, while geeky chicks swoon at your presence. You can thank us later." Indeed. You could use one of those key chain USB/Wi-Fi detectors but really, why bother?
