SOMEONE HAS NOW CREATED AN APP TO TELL YOU WHEN YOUR ZIPPER FLY IS DOWN
If you’re a guy, there are all sorts of things that can make your social life awkward. But one universal thing is when you forget to zip the fly in your pants back up. Who knows what could be peeking out? Maybe your shirt tail, as above. Or maybe that delectable color of underwear you chose that you never thought anyone else would see. Maybe Fruit of the Loom kids throwbacks? Who knows. But maybe you could be showing more than some store bought junk. And no one wants that! So what to do? One software engineer has an answer, and there’s an app for that.
GUY DUPONT CREATED SMART PANTS WITH SENSOR ZIPPER TO GIVE YOU A HEADS UP TO LOOK DOWN
His name is Guy Dupont. And for whatever reason, he has designed smart pants (as opposed to smarty pants) that have a sensor designed into the fly itself, which connects the zipper pull with a magnet. And when that sensor realizes an unzipped state of being, it communicates with a device in the pocket that then sends an alert notification to the pantsed man’s smartphone. I’d say this whole idea being suddenly real has me feeling caught with my pants down. So maybe this is something I should consider getting for myself. But I can’t help but wonder: first it’s an app that tells you if your fly is down. What could be next?
NOW THERE’S AN APP FOR A ZIPPER FLY MONITOR, BUT WHAT CRAZY SMART CLOTHES WILL FOLLOW?
Well, a lot could be on the way. We can already connect tracking devices to almost anything, besides our keys, of course. So trackable pants, or even hackable pants, are now a possibility. But there are also chastity belts for both men and women that have incorporated smart technology as well. I’m now concerned to be in a world all too soon that will tell my wife when I lowered my zipper and where. What if the IP triangulation didn’t show me in the bathroom and instead somewhere else? Now that I think about it, it’s far preferable to walk around with a zipper down (even with who knows what hanging out) till someone gives me a heads up (down, as it were).
