Geek fashion has a lot to do with technology and that is precisely why certain designers make sure they throw in a bit of technology when they design clothes and accessories.
This time around, U.S. luxury retailer Brookstone has announced a new set of cufflinks which come with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and covert data storage. All that you would need to do is to unplug your cufflink and then stick it into a laptop. Anyone 2who is within the prescribed range would be able to access the internet thanks to the Wi-Fi signals. The bottom-line is that your fashion accessory doubles up as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and will allow you or your friends to browse the web on smartphones, tablets and other mobile gadgets.
The cufflinks also double as USB storage devices and can store up to 2GB of space. The cufflinks look pretty chic and are oval shaped, and are coated with silver for a classic look. The cufflinks are cute indeed and may even prove to be useful. However, USB storage is becoming quite passé itself, and when smartphones themselves double as Wi-Fi hotspots, the purpose of these geeky cufflinks can be questioned. Nevertheless, it could be great way to help a geek to begin dressing well and to make sure that he learns how to take care of his appearance.
The cufflinks can be purchased for $249.99 and can be bought just in time for Valentine’s Day. Talking about Valentine’s Day, you would indeed need to shop for a number of gifts, depending on the number of clandestine lovers you have. With that in mind, you could take a look at the list of 16 Geeky Cufflinks that we had featured sometime back and you could pick up one pair of cufflinks for each of your secret lovers. The Ghostbusters Cufflinks could be a great gift idea too.
