Well, you thought wrong!
Socks have evolved over the centuries from the earliest models which were made from animal skins gathered up and tied around the ankles. In the 8th century BC, the Ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair for warmth. The Romans also wrapped their feet with leather or woven fabrics.
But from the dawn of sock history, people have had to have the tedious task of sorting their socks. EVEN STILL TODAY WITH ALL THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE. I mean, we live in the 21st century! We shouldn't have to sort out socks!
But lucky for you guys.... the solution exists at the tip of your fingers (or iPhone application). Let me introduce you to the world of self pairing socks (and yes, this product actually really exists!) Smarter Sock
s system from BlackSocks
(established 1999... ) has noticed the lameness of sorting your socks.
But now... you actually CAN Say... you have an app for that! Using RFID chips embedded to the socks, a scanner device and an application on your iPhone you can let your iPhone do ALL the work for you. The app features very useful information like the sock's ID, its partner, how many times it has been washed and how many times you have scanned the sock's information.
Oh, and you can also check how black your sock (WTF?) is with the help of your phone's camera.
You know how boring sorting out is, so you don't mind the a bit salty price, now do you?
With only 19$ a pair and a fabulous starter pack with 10 pairs of socks and the scanner unit at the price of 189$ even YOU can have this ever so needed product.
In fact. We liked this product so much on Electric Addiction show that we have now decided to bring you a NEW, much improved product with all the next step technology -well, or at least the social media aspect.
Let me introduce you to.... SOCK TWEETS!
Wouldn't you just LOVE to have all the latest info from your socks, including the need to wash, the abuse from your roommates (seriously, don't leave your socks unattended). How this gorgeous idea could ever go wrong?
