MemoMi have created a mirror unlike any other. The MemoryMirror allows you to see how any particular piece of cloth would look in any other color. Read all about it here!

 

Meet the ultimate gadget for the fashion conscious and say goodbye forever to the “which color would look best?” dilemma. The MemoryMirror is a new gadget that uses Intel’s RealSense technology, and allows users to see 360 degrees of any specific image of what they’re wearing and change the colors of any specific part of the outfit with simply gestures like opening or clenching a fist. Still, if that still sounds complicated, users may want to use a specially designed app for smartphones which can still access the entire range of possibilities in the MemoryMirror.

 

Another feature in the MemoryMirror is a split-screen effect which allows to see two colors of any given garment, and even compare and share with friends via email in image or picture format. This is particularly useful if you need a second opinion or can’t decide.

The MemoryMirror introduces a completely new experience when it comes to buying clothes and trying those out, as you can see how the colors look before even buying them. Whether this is a revolution, or technology that complicates a process that doesn’t need to be so hard, only time will tell.

You can learn more about the MemoryMirror in the official website, and even buy your own if this sounds like a must-have gadget to you.

Chewbacca hoodie will make wearers look like Chewie http://walyou.com/chewbacca-hoodie-will-make-wearers-look-like-chewie/ http://walyou.com/chewbacca-hoodie-will-make-wearers-look-like-chewie/#comments Wed, 13 May 2015 18:56:53 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=216430

With a new Star Wars movie in the horizon related media is pouring out of everywhere – and so productions like this hoodie pop up and we can’t do anything but write about them.

We have seen quite a few Chewbacca and wookie related hoodies and appearel throughout the years (we’re partial to a really funny video the beautiful LIz Katz did a while ago), but this is the first one we’ve seen that actually tries to replicate Chewie’s iconic look, and make it into a wearable jacket. Were you planning on taking a trip to Hoth? Because this is the type of stuff that could help you survive that climate.

Now, this is quite something, as this hoodie literally looks like they had to skin a wookie to make it – sorry vegans and eco-conscious people! Yet it turns out this is is just one  of the products at Welovefine, and retails for some $60 USD. Also, we were kidding, this is all synthethic and no wookies nor other animals were harmed in creating this. Now tell us you don’t want to wear this once Episode VII: The Force Awakens opens in theaters across the globe.

Pick one: being fashionable, or harnessing an endless, renewable source of power for your gadgets. Or, combine both thanks to Tommy Hilfiger.

Ok, granted, these might not be the latest fashion in Milan and other runways, but if you’re in constant need of power for your endless supply of gadgets, Tommy Hilfiger has got your back. These jackets cost $599 USD, and come in versions for Men and Women. These jackets are equipped with special wear dedicated to collecting energy from a variety of sources: kinetic, solar, or even auditory.

The proceedings from these jackets go to the Fresh Air Fund, a non-profit organization that helps low-income children experience another type of life from what they’re used to by taking trips to the countryside, so whether it’s ugly or not, you’re doing this for the children, not just your gadgets, and that is commendable by itself.

Books make an excellent subject for T-shirts, but not in the conventional way. Sometimes, taking a line from the novel and playing with it to make it cooler and more modern (if needed) or doing the same to a character makes much more of an impact when people see you wearing it.

Esty Shop BurntPixels’s Pac-Man Light Box http://walyou.com/esty-shop-burntpixelss-pac-man-light-box/ http://walyou.com/esty-shop-burntpixelss-pac-man-light-box/#comments Tue, 07 Oct 2014 14:00:49 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=179862

Eat away the dark in your home with this Pac-Man light box.

When it comes to fine-looking ornaments of the geeky persuasion, let Christina’s Etsy store BurntPixel fill that dark corner of your heart with one of her handcrafted light boxes. One of her newest lamps available is based on Japanese video game publisher Namco’s legendary arcade ghost eater, Pac-Man, and looks absolutely smashing.

Crafted from of laser-cut MDF, the Pac-Man light box is a 6 inch gloss black cube, featuring Pac-Man himself and his rainbow-colored specter pals. In a creative twist, the colors shining from the light box don’t emit from the light source – in this case is just a simple AAA battery-powered LED – but from the cut-outs themselves.

The overall effect is a simple, echoing illumination that feels almost similar to the classic 1980 game in motion. Thankfully, you won’t be needing an endless amount of quarters to enjoy it.

Right now you can purchase the Pac-Man light box from BurntPixels, a wonderful addition to a gaming den or bedroom, for the starting unassembled price of $50.00 USD; Add five more dollars to that price if you wish for full assembly and added shipping costs.

One-of-a-kind Nike Air Jordans Sport A PlayStation 4 Look http://walyou.com/one-of-a-kind-nike-air-jordans-sport-a-playstation-4-look/ http://walyou.com/one-of-a-kind-nike-air-jordans-sport-a-playstation-4-look/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 12:00:05 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=179508

These stunning sneaks are by a UK designer are PS4 fanboy approved.

If you’re looking for a fashion statement that proudly describes your gaming allegiances, then look no further than these pair of custom Air Jordans styled after the PlayStation 4.

They’re called the “JRDN X PS4”, and are the brain child of United Kingdom artist Jonny Barry from FreakerSNEAKS, a website devoted to coming up with unique sneaker designs not found in your everyday Foot Locker. Indeed, these shoes are truly something else.

Using a pair of jet black Air Jordan 4 – a fine vintage sneaker selection I might add – Barry has stitched PS4 and PlayStation logos at almost every turn, specifically on the back end, loudly and proudly. And for the tongue, an image of the ardroable trouble-making robots from the PS4 augmented-reality game, The Playroom.

The PlayStation fanboy pièce de résistance though (pictured way above): A HDMI port built into the sole of the shoe. Ridiculous? Yes. Amazing? Yes. Working? Nope. It’s for pure show, along with the Jordan-branded HDMI cables that come with the shoes, and make for a neat carrying cord when plugged in.

Barry plans on making a limited run of ten JRDN X PS4’s at a price of around $950 each, more than twice the price of a single PS4. Pretty outrageous, but then so are these custom sneaks. Interested parties should send a direct email to info@freakersneaks.com or contact Barry on Instagram at freakersneaks, if they’re seeking to purchase a pair.

Retro Gaming Kicks: Converse X Super Mario Bros. Sneakers http://walyou.com/retro-gaming-kicks-converse-x-super-mario-bros-sneakers/ http://walyou.com/retro-gaming-kicks-converse-x-super-mario-bros-sneakers/#comments Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:00:58 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=177098

A pair of Converse All Stars turned Super Mario All Stars – in the most awesome way ever.

I doubt wearing a pair of these sneaks will grant me the power to jump super high or shoot fireballs from my fingers, but at least I would be one sharp-looking dude (and I’ll take it!).

Available in Japan come this August for ¥21,600 ( that’s about $215 USD) – and sadly, oh so sadly, only in Japan – are these ridiculously cool Converse X Super Mario Bros. shoes, which are absolutely dripping from heel-to-toe with nostalgia of the classic 8-bit platformer on the NES.

Red or green, much like the colored suspenders Mario & Luigi each wear in the game, will be the two styles to choose from for these Super Mario-inspired “Chuck Taylors.” Each color variant with their own neat little trappings, like retro Mario or either Bowser appearing on the sneaker’s tongue.

Shout-out to cutely altering Converse’s trademark “All Star” logo into an invisiblity star on the side of these suede-looking bad boys. I love that particular touch, especially.

Ocarina of Time Dress Is The Dress of Legendary Good Looks http://walyou.com/ocarina-of-time-dress/ http://walyou.com/ocarina-of-time-dress/#comments Thu, 03 Jul 2014 14:00:08 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=176955

Check out this awesome looking Ocarina of Time dress from Koala Art & Design.

Fashion when it comes video games is usually limited to just goofy t-shirts. Cool, goofy-looking shirts I may add (and wear myself!), but far away from being something you might see being walked down the middle of a high-fashion runway in Paris.

Unless, that is, it’s this The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time-inspired dress from Koala Art & Design. Oh, yeah, this dress is certainly screams high-fashion – well, in my humble “tees-and-shorts everyday wear” opinion.

Sharp red and black gradients set the foundation for a stylish, silhouetted display of all the familiar trappings of the popular Nintendo 64 adventurer from 1998, and it all comes beautifully together in a dress that will deservedly turn heads, or in this case, time.

It’s such an amazing design, especially for something that’s game-inspired, and if I were someone who prefered to wear dresses, I’d certainly ‘work it’ as they say. There’s also a t-shirt version of the dress from Koala Art & Design if that suits your tastes, too.
