T-Post: A magazine you can wear.

After beating my way through the internet, I stumbled across this site, called “T-Post.” T-Post is a magazine, so to speak, but they don’t publish articles in the way people normally think to publish them (i.e. paper, ink, and a little glue). What T-Post does is it looks for one article every 6 weeks, and then print it on the inside of a t-shirt. They then send the article to famous graphic artists or t-shirt designers, and ask them to design a t-shirt based on their interpretation of the article. The t-shirts are then printed and mailed out to over 50 countries. New t-shirts are sent every six weeks, and costs 19 euros, which is about $27 USD. For more about the site, check out their “about us” video.

They’ve gotten even more creative than that, as of late: Their latest t-shirt design will actually play rock-paper-scissors with you, believe it or not. All you have to do is get to a computer with a webcam, put your shirt on, and a webapp on the T-Post site actually generates a 3D arm coming out of your shirt, which plays against you. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below. It’s arguably the scariest thing I’ve ever seen, yet I want to try it really, really badly.

    This…is…crazy.
    As in crazy cool.
    This such a ridiculous, yet awesome concept. I wasn't able to find a consistent place to read their articles online, which is unfortunate…Nonetheless, it's a really, really interesting alternative media source (as abstract as it is)

    Anyway, I'd probably start placing bets on how long it is before techies of the world adapt the virtual arm concept to beat each other up via webcam.

      If you go to their website and click past issues, i believe all their
      articles are right there. And i LOVE the idea… i know they make rocket
      launchers that you hook up to two different computers, and each person
      controlls the other's launcher (they launch foam darts). brilliant, eh?
