…T-Post lets you play Rock, Paper, Scissors with your t-shirt?

Rock Paper Scissors T-Shirt

T-Post is a monthly magazine that gets delivered as a t-shirt, with the news story on the inside, and an artist’s interpretation of that new story on the outside.

This month, they’re talking about Higher Education, and Marc Stromberg’s t-shirt design includes an augmented reality tag that allows you to play Rock, Paper, Scissors with a hand that comes out of your chest when you sit in front of a webcam.

Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Now I’m not quite ready to call Augmented Reality clothing a trend, but with the Adidas AR Game Pack and now a shirt that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors, the world of fashion is quickly becoming a world where things aren’t always as they appear.

…Your Mac can be a Wiinstrument?

The Wiinstrument

The Wiinstrument is an application that allows you to connect a Wiimote and Nunchuck to your Mac via Bluetooth, and turns your Mac into a MIDI controlling machine.

After syncing the controllers to your Mac, you make music by simply moving them around. The buttons and directional pad select instruments, and the software even taps into the Wiimote’s motion sensor to vary the sound depending on the speed of your swing.

It’s still in Beta, so there are bound to be a few bugs, but with an open source code, they should get squished quickly.

Ready to rock the world?

Then give the Wiinstrument a try.
