Think Geek’s Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie No Longer a Joke
by Brian Walton on December 8, 2013
Our friends at Think Geek, those knowledgeable nerds who create some of the most fun products on the planet, have dreamed up some wild stuff in their time, but nothing can beat the crazy fake ideas they come up with for April Fool’s Day every year. Unless, of course, they decide their sense of humor is actually the greatest r&d department you’ll ever find by turning the jokes into real products. That’s exactly what they did with their 2012 April Fool’s product, the Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie.
The interior of the hoodie features LED lights that are motion-controlled. Nine “spell” combinations change the lighting color, and a soundbox adds audio effects.
The hoodie is already sold out, but when they’re back in stock I will run around pretending to be a technobender. A technobender happens when a metalbender and lightningbender do some bedroom bending and have a kid, at least according to my Avatar: The Last Airbender fan fiction. Now if only we could convince them that voice modifying Bane Mask Walkie-Talkies need to actually exist.
