Black Box Reorder

While I'm on the topic of wearable technology, I can't resist talking about Diana Eng, who first made her way into our heart during Season 2 of Project Runway. Diana's new label, Black Box Nation, had its debut show at Make Magazine's Maker Faire last month to universal acclaim. I mean, who wouldn't go gaga for an inflatable dress with a vacuum cleaner attached? Black box Nation's web store focuses on affordable pieces of wearable tech-jewelry that make the geek heart go pitter pat. Reed switches, fuses, and the speaker tie-tac above are all designed to enhance your alpha-geek status, which, face it, could use a little polishing and waxing.
