Lost Your Shirt? Your Cell Phone Knows Where It Is

This week, Los Angeles–based menswear designer Asher Levine stirred up the Fashion Week runways by sending models out in – wait for it – giant rubber bat wings. But it looks like his bag of tricks doesn’t end there. Levine’s next line? Each piece will contain a microchip that’s linked to your cell phone. So, when you’ve dropped trou and just can’t seem to figure out where they’ve run off to, you can call them and they’ll beep until found.

Next up: geolocatable gym socks.
