Social Graph on Your Sleeve - A Memory Shirt that Combats Forgetfullness

Former President Bill Clinton was notorious for knowing the name of everyone he ever met. He accomplished this by directing aides to quickly screen people he was about to meet and then whisper that information to him just prior to the handshake moment.

Now, thanks to an innovation called the "Memory Shirt", most of us will soon have the ability to appear socially cognizant of the people we meet, especially those we've already met before, thus amplifying our physical social networking and avoiding some annoyingly awkward situations rooted in memory discrepancy.

Very cool product, but, personally, I think I'll wait for the contact lens version, which shouldn't be very far behind. :)
