Ping Clothing Tracks You, Automatically Updates Facebook

Fashion designer Jennifer Darmour's new line is called Ping. It contains sensors that discern what you're doing based upon your body movements and automatically updates your Facebook profile accordingly:

Lift up a hood, tie a bow, zip, button, and simply move, bend and swing to ping your friends naturally and automatically. No phone, no laptop, no hardware. Simply go about your day, look good and stay connected. [...]

The garment investigates ways to connect to larger software systems that can add more functionality and longevity to the experience while offering a new platform for communication and expression.

If you ride a car or motorbike- they follow you by your numberplates.
If you use cash-dispensers and credit-card, they know where you spend how much of your cash on what items.
If you pay bills, it is recorded.
If you use a mobile phone, they know from where, how long and with whom you called.
If you go to the docter, it is registered what kind of deseases and injuries you have.
If you go on the internet, they know exactly what interests you have and where you visit.

It takes only one guy somewhere to connect all the dots and your whole life is as clear and visible as our sun in the sky on a clear day.

So sure give us these clothes- they only will place the dots closer together...
