A new geeky jacket may help shy geeky-boys (or girls) interact with girls (or boys). Not only is it fashionable, but it also displays texts to create interpersononal interaction.
In texting, IMing, or other distanced interpersonal interaction there is a loss of personal interaction which causes a loss of natural human interaction abilities. Given this loss of personal interaction in todays society, when direct contact does happen there is a loss of social communication between partners. To fill this gap, kstran07 over at Instructables has come out with a solution that will bridge that gap of lost natural social abilities.
This emoticon jacket, which features an LCD screen on the front, allows you to create text messages to help you engage others in enteresting conversation (probably about why there is a big winking smiley face on your jacket). According to kstran07, this jacket will help replace "the nuances of personal communication with punctuation and textual cues in the virtual realm will help subtitle and enhance (or confuse) the conversation and interaction that occurs in the physical realm." So, you mean like putting a winking face in when you think some girl is cute, right?
Head on over to Instructables for the full instructions.
