Functional geek-chic: Is that a keyboard on your pants? (When fashion and tech collide)

I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve tried to shove a full keyboard in my pocket for convenient typing on the go, only to be frustrated and cry out, “If only I could sew this keyboard to my paaants!”

Ok, that’s a total lie. But evidently somebody out there has done that, otherwise the world wouldn’t have received this fabulous gift:

That’s right, those are pants with a keyboard built right into them. You may have seen these before as I believe they came out a couple of years ago, but it is worth revisiting. And I haven’t even mentioned the best part- they’re fully functional! These totally wired pants are Bluetooth-enabled, have speakers sewn in at the knees, a pocket for a travel mouse, and a uh, ahem, joystick controller located behind the front zipper.

These pants were the brain-child of designer Erik De Nijs, but no word on whether they are actually in production. Too bad, since they’re the ultimate in functional geek-chic.
