Thanks to Kyle Coats for sending me this story via “The PractitioNERD” Facebook page (by the way, be sure to LIKE the page). Anyway, Former NASA engineer, Mark Rober has now joined the latest technology with the perennial favorite, ugly Christmas sweater…and it’s the best Cyber Monday deal you’ll see. The ugly Christmas sweater has become a ubiquitous feature of the holiday season, on par with grumbling about Black Friday or wrestling with the Christmas lights. However, former NASA engineer Mark Rober (remember the Halloween costumes he made that I talks about?) has now combined the latest technology with the perennial favorite, ugly Christmas sweater…and it’s the best holiday deal you’ll ever see. Rober’s designs include holiday sweaters with digital flickering fireplaces, kittens that meow, Santa Clauses, and snow-storm-y globes.
Those who wear these sweaters will need an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S3, or any other mobile device that can fit into the 5.5-inch by 3.75-inch pocket on the front of the sweater. Then all you need to do is download the free app, slide the device securely into the pocket, and you’re ready to go. You can turn the fire on and off to starting and stopping the snow globe. The sweaters start at $44.95 and can be bought online on Morphsuits’ website. Joy To The World!!!
