Smart Socks

"Imagine your phone could communicate with your socks," says the Blacksocks company. But imagine no more, because the company has now created "the smartest men's dress socks in the world." The company admits that, "This is something we dreamed about and we have made the dream come true."

The socks feature a "communication button" that allows the socks to speak to your iPhone. The things your socks might tell your iPhone include:

which socks belong together,and could help sort them out,
how often you have washed your socks,
when your socks were produced,
when you ordered your socks and
when your socks were dispatched.
Your iPhone can also tell you if your black socks are no longer properly black and help you buy new socks.

The smartest socks in the world come with a price tag of $189 for 10 pairs. So $18.90 for each pair.

Pretty soon we'll have such communication devices on skimpy swimsuits. That will be the IoT, Internet of Thongs.

At twenty bucks a pair I'd expect them to turn themselves outside out before they jump into the washer.
