BLACKSOCKS launches world first – Smarter Socks. Probably the smartest socks in the world:
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…
My friend Olivier from Cloudfactory shoots black and white snapshots on a daily base. It’s a style of mobile photography that differs from other forms of digital photography in that images are shot and processed on his iOS device. He calls it iPhoneography. He uses the Hipstamatic app with the Nike Freepak. That one was only available for a limited time and won’t return to their Hipstamart. Asshole Hipsters (Hipstamatic, not Olivier!).

Update: And this is a strange one! All of a sudden I got the Nike Freepak! I don’t know how, it just downloaded with my download of the Rock The Vote Freepak… STRANGE!
But: Thanks anyway, you wayward Hipsters!
