The world’s thinnest rollable screen is coming... to your T-shirt
It’s like a personal screen (that you can’t see)
What does all that mean? It means it’s bendy. Like, really bendy… enough to put on T-shirts or hats.
The combo is probably made for ballers like Drake and Chance the Rapper rather than some random like me, because the combo is priced at US$1,399. You can also just buy either the shirt or the hat on its own for US$899 per unit.
But, let’s be real for a second. While it’s cool as hell, it’s also incredibly impractical: To watch the screen, you’d have to actually remove the hat or shirt… which somewhat defeats the purpose of wearing an item of clothing if you’re just going to take it off.
The company says the screen can be connected to your phone and functions as a touchscreen. The hat and the T-shirt are both equipped with small external batteries that allow the display to stay on for about 10 hours.
According to Royole, there’s no magic with the shirt and the hat. The combo is essentially normal clothing, but with the screen and battery attached by hook-and-loop fasteners. It allows the electronic components to be removed for washing and cleaning.
