Surveillance Underwear

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) recently announced that it's launching a program to develop "durable, ready-to-wear clothing that can record audio, video, and geolocation data." This will include underwear.

The surveillance clothing will aim to be "stretchable, bendable, comfortable, and washable like regular clothing."

I'd like to see James Bond wearing surveillance underwear in his next movie.

In IARPA's press release, they identify this program as The Smart Electrically Powered and Networked Textile Systems, with the acronym of SMART ePANTS (of course). I had to check to see if it was April 1.

Somehow, I don't think they'll make as much of an impact on this world as DARPA.

Hackers will soon have a new definition for the old phrase "getting into her pants."

The problem with 007 in surveillance underwear: when things get interesting, he'll keep taking it off.

Great, another invention for abusive husbands to control their wife.
