Usually a magazine subscription gets you 12 issues a year and maybe an extra calendar or special promotional issue. T-post does it a little different by releasing a T-shirt with the monthly themed article every 6 weeks. The article itself is printed on the inside back of the shirt and artist depiction on the front. Each month has only a single topic written and graphically depicted, they also change the artist every month to keep the designs different and fresh. T-post is also environmentally conscious and using organic cotton t-shirts and only printing enough to cover the subscribers. Video after the break.
The 51st issue takes it to the next level with Augmented Reality, and lets you to battle your T-shirt in a game of Rock + Paper + Scissors by use of a Web Cam and a computer. The shows an arm extending from the front by way of a phantom 3-D arm protruding from your chest. This is probably the coolest T-shirt Ive seen since Hypercolor color changing clothing back in 1991. Here’s what the company founder had to say about this issue.
I love the new Augmented Reality technology. It gives us a chance to make t-shirts with only 5% of the total experience printed on the fabric itself. The rest you’ll be able to enjoy interactively through your web camera, says Peter Lundgren
T-post definitely set a new standard for geek wearable. Since they don’t print any back issues or sell the shirt anywhere else, you wont be able to spend your Friday nights in tormenting combat playing Rock + Paper + Scissors against your t-shirt. Augmented Reality is popping up everywhere If you are interested in subscribing, t-post ships worldwide for a monthly cost of around $35 per t-shirt.
