Wtfjeans Has A Smartphone Pocket That Keeps Radiation From You

Remember the smartphone-friendly I/O Denim? It turns out that it is not the only made-for-smartphone jeans in the market. In fact, Croatia-based WTFJEANS (you got to love this name, don’t you?) has been around since 2009 and is an awesome alternative if you are looking for an apparel that is designed with your smartphone in mind. WTFJEANS up the ante by not just having a WTFPocket to nest your small smart device, but also one that features a specially designed WTFShield that keeps any EMF radiation from getting to your body. This may come as a pleasant news for dudes who are constantly worried about the radio wave that might be doing harm to, erhmm, you know what.

Though there is no conclusive study to show the effect of this small doses of EMF radiation to our body, it is still good to know that you are protected anyway.
A EMF radiation-repelling copper fabric sealed in plastic is placed at the back of the phone pocket to keep the radiation away from the body, while still allowing signals from the outside to reach your smartphone and thus, maintaining the phone’s functionality. Additionally, this front-facing smartphone pocket (aka WTFPocket) is padded and microfiber-lined to keep your device free from scratches and promised to wipe the device clean of fingerprints and smudges with the mere action of putting or retrieving the device into and from the pocket. As an apparel, the denim is treated to a nanotechnology coating that repels liquid and even oil-based substances, so you can be looking nice and clean no matter what.

With the WTFJEANS, it also present a new take of denim jeans by having straight front pockets that distinguishes WTFJEANS from the hordes of denims in the market. Just below these front pockets is where you will find the WTFPocket. the WTFJEANS also offers buyers custom message of up to 30 characters, printed on the inside of the jeans to mark your ownership, which is a nice touch, considering that you will only find such customization in high-end bespoke tailors that would usually cost a bomb.

We are not going to lie though. WTFJEANS is not cheap. Perhaps a little pricer than your average designer pair, but still at €127 a pair, you’d be doing your “man bits” a flavor, while adding convenience to your smartphone life.

p.s. for a limited time, WTFJEANS is offering a discount coupon (code: V3PROMOCODE) for an additional €10 discount, in addition to free shipping being offered now.

This Beats Headphones Come With Cast Marble Pillow For It To Rest

Beats by Dre temaed up with Snarkitecture, a collaborative art/design studio to create a special, limited-edition pair of Beats headphones. So, the world’s most famous headphone has been completely redesigned and reimagined. It is now pure matte white and accompanied by the signature pillow. “The idea is to start with their existing product, something people are very familiar with, and transform it and alter it to something new and unexpected,” says Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture.

“So we imagined the headphones, their signature glossy black and red branding, and we stripped all of that back, simplifying the object to its core essence.” And it’s not as simple as blanking out a stock pair of Beats, either: “For one of our simplest-looking projects, it was probably our most challenging,” according to Omar Johnson of Beats. “The contrast between metal, plastic, rubber, leather—all those things carry different colors different ways.”

New Beats x Snarkitecture is lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable, with precision sound, Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and RemoteTalk. It has all the energy and excitement you expect from Beats, plus a powerful, reengineered sound.
Priced at $600, the arty new headset will be available on the Beats website from June 9th.
