'Smart Closet' Tells You What To Wear

If you've ever stood in front of your closet trying to figure out what to wear for an important meeting, a new high-tech wardrobe invention might be just the thing for you.

The "smart wardrobe" keeps track of when you wore an item, where you wore it, and can even tell you when your clothes need to be dry-cleaned.

Developed by Australian researchers, the garment gizmo is being touted as a dress-for-success solution that could give busy people the edge to get ahead.

"The wardrobe can tell you that you have a meeting this morning with Joe Bloggs, that you have worn the same shirt the last three times you met him and that maybe you should wear something else or he will think you only have one shirt," says Prof. Bruce Thomas, director of the wearable computer laboratory at the University of South Australia.

Don't want to be bitchy  ;) 

But look at those two  :o

I know they're Australian so you have to make allowances, but surely not even the straightest straight man would want to rely on anything connected to them for clothing advice  :D

What's the problem? In case you're worried about them being overdressed, it was just cos of the publicity shot - or maybe the wives/gfs had just washed their shorts and they were out on the clothesline. If you could see lower, they were wearing thongs (uh oh ... that means rubber sandal sort of things - flipflops? ) and so weren't dressed so badly at all

For someone that routinely drops dirty clothes on the floor, and does laundry *only* when there's nothing clean enough to wear... this sounds like an amazing amount of work to maintain.

Plus, the opportunity for pranks is just too real.

"LOVE what you're wearing, darling.  But isn't a sun dress and pumps a bit femme for you, Bob?"

"Hrm, it's what the damn shitbox told me to wear today..."
