Smarter Socks consist of socks with a communication chip, the Sock Sorter and the BLACKSOCKS iPhone app. So this might be the weirdest application of RFID meets iPhone app I’ve ever seen, yet I’m sure you’ll love it all the same, for all sorts of random useless tech reasons! Clearly tackling a big global problem, mismatching your pairs of black socks can be really annoying, you know when you get the left sock on the right foot? Well, BlackSocks is your perfect solution, never again will you have unmatched pairs or place the wrong sock on the wrong foot… Plus, you’ll know when they are wearing out with a sophisticated black colour tool…! Spoof right? No idea. But the app is real

Thanks, Sami!
