Are you bored wearing the same T-shirt everyday?

Hyderabad-based company Broadcast offers a solution for this by coming up with the country’s first programmable T-shirt. The exciting part about it that as you type, it displays it on your T-shirt.

He said it was a challenge to create a circuit board on the shirt as that would cause discomfort to the wearer. To avoid that, Broadcast soldered the LED circuit onto a cotton cloth, by using special chemical. The result was a flexible circuit board that doesn’t cause any discomfort.

So this will surely give Zuck more points for his fashion sense.


Here’s how to display the message:

1. Download the Broadcast app
