Before Long, Even Your T-Shirt Will Be Connected to the Internet

Imagine turning your t-shirt into a display device, connected wirelessly to the Internet.  Regardless of whether this video is simply a marketing stunt or preparation for a Kickstarter campaign, London-based CuteCircuit built a cotton t-shirt with over 1,000 LEDs arranged in a 32 x 32 grid, plus a camera, microphone, speaker, and accelerometer.

Further imagine using an iPhone to program and interact with it.  Or using a service like IFTTT to connect it to Twitter, Facebook, or other cloud-based services.  Or maybe to sensors that measure your heart rate, and then display a beating heart on your t-shirt.

This professionally produced video is a remarkable view into the future of connected devices - literally, even what you wear will be woven into the fabric of the Internet.

about 280.vc

I've spent the last 18 years driving up and down the length of Interstate 280, which starts in San Francisco and runs the length of Silicon Valley. Also known as the Junipero Serra Highway, the road offers an amazing juxtaposition of a modern, eight-lane superhighway with some of the most awe-inspiring natural scenery on earth. Since I love to drive, I've spent a huge chunk of my life on 280 - visiting entrepreneurs, traveling to meet companies, talking on the phone, and heading to Old La Honda to climb the hills on my road bike. I love this highway and everything it represents - it's the secret connecting lifeblood of the Bay Area.
