Does a color-changing dress turn you on?
Daan Roosegaarde, founder of Studio Roosegaarde hopes so. The high-tech dress turns clear when something gets you excited, which may provide your date with some unexpected eye-candy.
The dress is called Intimacy 2.0. Made in white or black, the garment is constructed with leather and opaque smart e-foils, blended with wireless technology and LED lighting. If your heart begins to race, your dress loses more and more color. "Social interactions determine the garmentsʼ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure," the project's website states.

Wi-Fi detection hats
Brando Workshop has released the "Wi-Fi Detection Cap," clothing which is able to seek out 802.11 b/g/n signals. If you're looking for a Wi-Fi connection in a public place, then two LED lights on the cap will show you network strength and availability -- although of course you will have to take it off to check.
The hat comes in three colors, two designs, and requires CR2032 batteries. The Wi-Fi Detection Cap costs $14 - $18.
Combating jetlag: The Re-Timer
Re-Timer is a wearable device that can be used to readjust your body's reaction to light and hopefully combat jetlag.
The Australian research company has created its device to be worn like a pair of glasses. By emitting soft green light, it is supposed to mimic natural lighting -- hopefully preventing the groggyness and ache that frequent fliers face.
Professor Leon Lack, Chief Inventor, said "Photoreceptors in our eyes detect sunlight, signal our brain to be awake and alert, and set our rhythms accordingly. These rhythms vary regularly over a 24-hour cycle. However, this process is often impaired by staying indoors, travelling to other time zones, working irregular hours, or a lack of sunlight during winter months." To better adjust to changes in timezones, Lack suggests that wearing the glasses every day for 50 minutes can help you either delay or advance your body clock.
