April Fool’s joke no more 5 Apr 2008 @ 15:58

Anyone in the blogosphere knows the name ThinkGeek The online retail outlet for just about anything a geek would want…..in their home, their cube, and to wear in order to demonstrate to the world your true geekdom status.

Well, this year ThinkGeek back on April 1st they decided to list a wearable t-shirt that "would play sound effects or a short clip of various types of background music. All controlled via a remote you had in your pocket". Well, since SOOOOOO many people actually bought into the joke, TG is gonna do the right thing and ACTUALLY make the t-shirt.

Here’s the TG response, in it’s entirety:

Looks like we’re the fools here. The Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt was originally an April Fool’s Prank… but due to overwhelming positive response and hundreds of e-mails screaming to "make the damn shirt already" we’re putting this item in to production ASAP. Keep in mind our army of robotic factory monkeys are a bit slow, and it might take them some time to make the real version of this nifty product. Also although we’ll try to keep the Personal Soundtrack T-Shirt as close as possible to what you see here, the final version might deviate slightly in appearance, features or price. Capiche?

The guys in the R&D department are practically drooling over this prospect. Guess your General is going to have to get on the mailing list.
