“T-Post” is a wearable magazine that supplies its subscribers with a different t-shirt every six weeks. Printed on the inside of each shirt is a news article about a particular current event, on the outside is graphic art used to give it a unique visual interpretation.
If you’re a subscriber, you’ve already been hooked up with this t-shirt which uses augmented realityÂ and a webcam to allow you to play rock, paper, scissors with an ultra-competitive extra limb that lives in your chest. Check out the video above to see the shirt in action.
The game of rock-paper-scissors has been around for far too long without being updated. Adding Spock and lizard as valid entries opens the whole game up, but it is only fun if everyone knows the rules. Just think of yourself as the new ambassador of the game when you wear this shirt that shows all the interconnected relationships. My favorite has to be that paper disproves Spock.

Designers Thomas Jaillot and Marco De Michelis are planning on unveiling the “Paper Cuts” bracelet sometime this week for the new Toy-Me collection. From the teaser:
“Paris designer Thomas Jaillot together with Marco De Michelis will introduce a Silver Scissor that wraps around your wrist and mixes with paper art transformations into silver, Origami earrings and a Paper Windmill charm and Earing.”
It is unconventional, that’s for sure, but it definitely works.
