Is that a keyboard in your pants or just another old joke?

Taking the idea of a 'laptop computer' to its logical-but-absurd extreme, a pair of Dutch designer dorks have come up with a pair of jeans with a built-in wireless computer keyboard. Enjoy.

Brings new meaning to the idea of one-armed typing.

Instead of a mouse, they should put one of those IBM TrackPoints in the middle.

What?

I guess you'd better be really careful to shake off those last few drops.

alternative headline: denim snobs rejoice as new pants give them a real reason to not wash their jeans

If you spill hot coffee in your lap, you can sue twice: for injury AND office equipment damage.

it does kinda redefine the term 'office equipment'

Goose me one more time, and I'll hit you in the delete button so hard your shift will fall off.

Are you happy to see me, or are you typing a letter?

Funnier, and more fashionable, three years ago. Video.

(Although apparently Zach's pants were inspired by the Dutch design, which has been around for at least that long. Circles!)

Are you writing an angry email or are you just happy to see me?

D'oh sorry HuronBob!

They have designer dorks in Holland? So unfair. All I get are dorks from Wal-Mart.

Is that a keyboard in your pocket, or are you just glad to QWERTY?

That would be hell on touch typists.
posted by Canageek at 5:05 PM on February 18, 2012


On the contrary, Canageek, touch typists could walk and text at the same time while still seeing where they're going!

But driving, you'd fasten your seat belt and be all "qwertyuiopqwertyuiopqwertyuiop".

I slide up to women in bars and tell them them I've got a laptop in my jeans and I won't go away until they press my CTRL-ALT-DELETE.

Last time I tried that I got the blue screen of death. But I keep rebooting.

This is going to bet the start of a decade long debate over whether keyboard pants lead to testicular cancer.

@oneswellfoop Really? The spacings look all wrong to me...
posted by Canageek at 7:37 PM on February 18, 2012


@SpacemanStix: No, but it will cause lots of research into if typing causes blindness.
