Guys having problem with unhooking ladies’ bra, you have to put down everything (like seriously, everything) and read this. A patent has been recently granted to one Michael M. Ahmadshahi Ph.D., Esq. for Signal-Activated Lingerie that is described as such:
“Lingerie, such as bras which are worn by females, have a fastening mechanism, such as a hook-type fastener, which is difficult to open, especially for the male counterpart. A bra according to the present invention could be made using a signal-activated fastener such that the female’s boyfriend or husband could clap his hand and the bra would automatically open.”
“These lingerie DO NOT use biometrics. We do, however, have a patented technology which uses biometric signals to unfasten the lingerie remotely. We hope to bring it to you soon!”
So, there you have it. Removing bra by hand (or hand, if you are a pro) could be a thing of the past. The patented tech can be used on a variety of apparels too, including pants and belt (and also the company’s very minimal one-piece lingerie as detailed in the patent). The inventor mentioned the possibility of voice-recognition technology that only authorized person can activate it (for obvious reason). But seriously, clap is enough, Ahmadshahi. Biometric is really not necessary.
Fun fact: Back in 2009, a team comprising of Elena N. Bodnar, Raphael C. Lee, and Sandra Marijan in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. was awarded Ig Nobel Health Prized for inventing a bra that doubles as protective face masks during an emergency. The design allows the bra’s cups to be separated and each worn as a face mask. Yes. I am not kidding about this one either.
Well, what can I say? It is good to know that a bra can do more than holding breasts. Both the bra-mask and the clap to unhook bra proposition are awesome, but I am going to give the clap release invention an extra vote. Don’t think dirty. It’s in name of technology. I swear.
